HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 c1255
88. Sir K. WOOD

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now announce his reply to the application of the semi-skilled and unskilled workers of Woolwich Arsenal that the recent advances granted to the skilled workers by an arbitration tribunal shall be applied to them?


This matter is still under consideration, and I am not yet in a position to make a statement.


Can the hon. Gentleman indicate when I can put this question down so that I can receive a reply?


I am sorry I cannot say exactly. I think I ought to remind the hon. Member that a concession has already been made to this particular class, but that is only part of the claim, the second part of which we are considering, which was laid 12 months before we came into office and refused.
