43. Sir F. HALL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will arrange for a return to be presented to the House setting out, in a summarised form, the wages paid to the miners before let May last, and the wages paid in the engineering and other industries in this country, together with a comparison of time worked?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of LABOUR (Mr. Henry Betterton)
I have been asked to reply. So far as such a comparison is practicable, my hon. and gallant Friend will find it made in the Report of the Royal Commission. The relevant passages begin on pages 155 and 285.
§ Mr. BETTERTON
My hon. and gallant Friend will find an elaborate summary, giving him all the details he asks for, on page 155 of the Report.
