40. Colonel THORNE
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether, in connection with the stocktaking at Woolwich Arsenal, he is aware that, although the rules provide for the payment of adult male employés during this period, there is no provision for payment of youths and boys during such enforced absence from work; and whether he will favourably consider amending the rules in this direction?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
I am aware of the rule to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers and am arranging a conference with the Treasury and the Ministry of Labour to see if any modification can safely be made.
