§ 46. Mr. BROCKWAY
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government intends to introduce legislation to prevent a reduction of the wages of miners and railwaymen?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which the Prime Minister gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Dumbarton Burghs (Mr. Kirkwood), of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Mr. BROCKWAY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the reductions threatened are to a minimum of less than £2 a week, and is the Government prepared to take action to prevent that hunger-level of wages being reached?
§ Mr. SNOWDEN
I think the Prime Minister's answer to the question to which I referred the hon. Member says everything that it is possible to say. I am not aware of the accuracy of the figures to which he refers.
