HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1088
41. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware that while the men employed by the Ordnance Department at Salisbury Plain were paid their wage for the Peace day holiday, the men employed in the Department of Royal Engineers were not paid; and whether he will give instructions that the men employed in the Royal Engineers' Department must be paid their wage?


I have inquired and am informed that all the civilian workmen in the employ of the Royal Engineers in the district have been paid for the Saturday Peace holiday.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say when the payment took place?


I cannot state the date.
