§ 80. Mr. ADAMSON
asked the Secretary for Mines whether any consideration was given during the recent discussions with his Department and the mine-owners, for an advance of wages to those engaged on clerical work in the mines, or if any negotiating machinery exists for this purpose in the interests of the clerical grades?
§ Mr. ADAMSON
Will not the hon. and gallant Gentleman consider setting up some kind of machinery to deal with this matter?
§ Captain CROOKSHANK
It is a matter for local negotiation between employers and employed, and has nothing to do with the Ministry.
