HC Deb 17 July 1912 vol 41 cc407-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the conditions of labour of Messrs. London, of Motherwell, who are paying only 36s. per week of 70 instead of 52½ hours; is he aware that the firm in question is fulfilling a contract for bread to the Hamilton Barracks; and will he see that the Fair-Wage Contract is complied with?

Colonel SEELY

The investigation of this complaint is not yet concluded. The case is not free from difficulty, but I hope that it will be possible to arrive at a conclusion shortly.
