HC Deb 23 November 1926 vol 200 cc205-6

asked the Minister of Transport the names of those local authorities who work their own quarries to produce the material for the repair and reconstruction of the roads under their control; and whether those employed in those quarries are paid on the same scale of wages as the employés of other quarry undertakings under the joint industrial councils?

The MINISTER of TRANSPORT (Colonel Ashley)

No records are available in my Department showing what local authorities work quarries for the purposes of highway construction and maintenance.
