§ 5. Mr. THORNE
asked the Minister of Labour if he has received any report from his inspector in connection with the prosecution of the Cheap Modern Shoe Repairs Company of Walsall; whether he has made any report about the manager of the firm, who produced a false record of the hours and wages to the inspector; and whether he intends taking any action in the matter?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
I have already taken legal proceedings in the case to 460 which the hon. Member refers. Fines were imposed in respect of the underpayment of wages and the production of false records and an order was made for the payment of the arrears of wages due to workers.
