HC Deb 22 March 1938 vol 333 cc977-8
21. Mr. Whiteley

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the civilians, working as labourers side by side with soldiers in the various camps, are to receive any increase in their wages equivalent to that recently given to the soldiers?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The remuneration of civilian workmen of the War Department is regulated in accordance with the Fair Wages Resolution of the House. There are relatively very few Army establishments where labourers have not benefited in recent months by improvements in wages.
