HC Deb 23 July 1919 vol 118 c1357
59. Major HILLS

asked whether the Government intend to adopt the recommendations with regard to the relationship of women's wages to men's, contained in the War Cabinet Committee's Report on Women in Industry; and, if they do, whether he will take immediate steps, in cases where the Government is a direct employer, to see that these wages are paid, and where the Government employs a contractor to amend if necessary the Fair-Wages Resolution, so that it may cover women's wages in the sense laid down by the Report?


I have been asked to reply to this question. I am afraid it is not possible at present to add anything to the reply given by the Leader of the House to a similar question on the 9th July.
