§ 84. Captain O'GRADY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the War Office if he is aware that the clothiers' cutters employed temporarily at the Royal Army Clothing Depot, Pimlico, are not being paid for the Easter holidays, a notice being posted in the factory to that effect; and whether, having regard to the fact that all the contractors on the list pay for holidays if men are engaged beforehand, he will issue instructions that the men in Government employment shall receive the same consideration?
§ Sir R. SANDERS
Under the rules of the Department casual employés who have less than six months' service are not entitled to payment for holidays. The men referred to by the hon. and gallant Member are employed under the short-time scheme on a day-to-day engagement, and are therefore excluded from payment for the holidays.
