§ 39. Mr. CROOKS
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether he is aware that a deputation representative of ordnance factories draughtsmen was received on the 25th March last relative to the claim of these draughtsmen to be placed on the pensionable establishment, and that up to the present no reply has been given to the representations then made; and whether he is now in a position to state his decision?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
It is intended that consideration of the claim referred to in my right hon. Friend's question shall fall within the scope of a Departmental Committee, which will consider questions relating to the pensionable establishment of various 263 factories under the Ministry of Munitions. As the Association representing these draughtsmen has already been informed, similar claims have been received from other classes of clerical and supervisory grades.
