HC Deb 03 March 1909 vol 1 cc1553-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he would consider the possibility of appointing the leading men of labourers who perform the work of storehouse clerks and assistant foremen in the Army Ordnance Department at Island Bridge to the grade the work of which they perform?


As regards storehouse clerks there is no such grade at stations other than Woolwich and Pimlico, and leading men as such are paid as well as or better than labourers employed on clerical work. As regards those performing the work of assistant foremen, inquiries are being made.
