HC Deb 19 March 1931 vol 249 cc2130-1
37. Sir F. HALL

asked the Minister of Health what requirements the Ministry has laid down in connection with the payment of Government grants to local authorities for housing schemes with respect to the observance of fair conditions of labour as regards the materials used in the provision of housing accommodation; and whether such conditions apply to goods imported from abroad as well as to those produced in this country?


I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy of the Fair Wages Clause which local authorities are required to insert in all contracts for the building of subsidised houses.


Will the right hon. Gentleman reply to the last part of the question?


I think the hon. and gallant Member will find, if he will consult the Fair Wages Clause, that that point is covered. I will discuss it with the hon. and gallant Member.
