HC Deb 02 March 1944 vol 397 c1547
1. Mr. Glenvil Hall

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that some firms are making arrangements to pay their workpeople up to seven days in arrears because of bookkeeping difficulties due to the institution of pay-as-you-earn deductions for Income Tax; and if he will take steps to see that firms genuinely in need of extra staff for this work are assisted to obtain it?

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Bevin)

I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply of 17th February to the hon. and gallant Member for The Hartlepools (Colonel Greenwell).
