Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the hon. Member if he is aware that under the new Regulations respecting sick pay 98 per cent, of the temporary employés in the Royal Parks with over ten years' service are in a worse position than they were in under the old Regulations; and whether he will alter the Regulations and give the men three-quarter pay as previously paid them when sick?2970W
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN
The First Commisisoner is not of the opinion that the facts are as stated. Under the old Regulations these men received three-quarters pay for two months; under the new they receive two-thirds pay for three months.
