HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 cc1414-5
52. Mr. Chetwynd

asked the Minister of Labour whether any decision has been reached by the Catering Wages Board for the licensed non-residential establishments.

The Minister of Labour (Mr. Isaacs)

Orders giving effect to proposals by the licensed Non-Residential Establishment Wages Board in respect of workers other than managers of public houses and club stewards were made by me on 31st December, 1946, and 22nd December, 1947. No further proposals have been submitted to me by the Board.

Mr. Chetwynd

Is my right hon. Friend aware that there is great dissatisfaction among managers and club stewards that their demands have not yet been met whereas those of other employees have?

Mr. Isaacs

That may be, but I have no evidence or information about it. I understand that the Board is to meet very shortly, I believe in a few days.
