§ 25. Mr. Robert Gibson
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding arrangements for collecting the contributions of the non-established workers in the Royal Naval Torpedo Factory, Greenock, to their hospital's fund from their pay?
§ Mr. Shakespeare
The hon. and learned Member will be pleased to hear that 1876 arrangements are now being made to institute the centralised machinery, referred to in the reply given to him on this subject on 15th December last, under which Government industrial employés in any part of the country, not covered by existing contributory schemes, may arrange for contributions to local hospital funds by means of deductions from their pay.
§ Mr. Gibson
Does that mean that new entrants into the torpedo factory service will have the same privileges as the established workers and the old hands; and is that being extended beyond the Admiralty service?
