HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 c1964

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the wheelwrights employed at His Majesty's Gun Wharf, Devonport, have not yet been paid the 12 ½ per cent. award made by the Ministry of Munitions nor the full total of the 5s. awarded by the Committee on Production as from December, 1917, to the engineering and foundry trades: and whether he will now take steps to remove the cause of the consequent dissatisfaction?


The 5s. advance was authorised in December last, as from the first full pay week in that month, in accordance with the award of the Committee of Production. The payment of 12 ½ per cent. was authorised on the 1st instant.
