§ Mr. MALCOLM
asked the hon. Member for Southampton, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether he is aware that sixteen painters working at the Horse Guards branch of the Office of Works have not yet received their pay in compensation for loss of time owing to the Coronation, although the other men employed on the same work were duly compensated; and whether he will direct the necessary compensation to be paid in compliance with the Prime Minister's promise?
Mr. DUDLEY WARD
The men in the direct employ of the Office of Works at the Horse Guards, and those men on the contractors' list who were engaged on day-work for the Department, have been paid170W for the days in question, according to my answer to the hon. Member for Deptford on the 19th of June.
