§ 4. Mr. Mainwaring
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that there is a large number of workers, heads of 1396 families, doing essential war work in various branches of industry and for wages lower than the assessment of needs laid down by the Ministry of Labour for men undergoing courses of training and instruction; and whether he contemplates taking any steps to remedy the position?
§ Mr. Mainwaring
Does the Minister consider that is. 2d. per hour is a reasonable wage in these days of rising costs of living for semi-skilled men such as were referred to in the previous Question who have been trained by the Ministry?
§ Sir Irving Albery
Have the Government any comprehensive policy for dealing with the remuneration of labour during war-time?
