Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether the application for an increase of wages made four months ago by the employés at Hampton Court and Richmond and Bushey Parks has been replied to; and, if so, what is the nature of the reply?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN
No, Sir. The matter has, however, been fully inquired into by the Department, and is now before the Treasury on a recommendation for an increase in the wages of the men concerned.
