HC Deb 18 March 1952 vol 497 cc2095-6
35. Mr. Manuel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how far contractors and sub-contractors employed on Scottish Special Housing Association schemes are subject to the terms of the fair wages clause and the National Arbitration Tribunal Award No. 1442 of 10th May, 1950.

Mr. J. Stuart

The fair wages clause is included in the conditions of contract operated by the Association and should therefore be included in all sub-contracts. The terms of the award of 10th May, 1950, are observed by the Association and, as far as they are aware, by all contractors and sub-contractors employed on work commissioned by them.

Mr. Manuel

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in some schemes operated by the Association certain contractors and sub-contractors are not observing the award mentioned in the Question? If I send him certain cases, will he see that the holiday with pay agreement is observed as it was laid down in the award?

Mr. Stuart

Certainly, Sir.
