Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the firm of Messrs. Vosper, of Portsmouth, contractors to the Admiralty, are paying the joiners employed by them 2s. per week less than the standard rate of wage; and whether he will communicate 1870W with the firm with the object of enforcing the provisions of the Fair-Wages Clause?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. I will have inquiry made into the subject.
