HC Deb 16 May 1928 vol 217 cc1022-3
30. Mr. MALONE

asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been drawn to the case of Miss Josephine Wilson, a waitress at a large London store, whose wages were 24s. a week, out of which she had to pay 12s. 6d. a week rent, and who committed suicide last week; and whether, as there is no trade board, he will consider what steps can be taken for the purpose of adjusting wage rates in this profession to an adequate standard?


I have no information with regard to this case. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the right hon. Member for Central Edinburgh (Mr. W. Graham) on 11th February, 1926, of which I am sending him a copy.
