§ 52. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he can make a statement relative to the correspondence with the National Council of Aircraft Workers with reference to the alleged non-operation of the Fair Wages Clause at the firm of Airscrew, Limited; and what action does he propose to take?
§ Sir P. Sassoon
I have examined carefully the correspondence forwarded to me by the National Council of Aircraft Workers and the statements made by that organisation and I cannot see that there is any evidence that the terms of the Fair Wages Clause are not being complied with by the Airscrew Company, Limited. I am making further inquiries, however, with regard to certain statements which appear in the correspondence.
