HC Deb 18 March 1912 vol 35 c1679W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the desirability of placing a representative of the wage-earning classes on the Fair-Wages Advisory Committee?


The Fair-Wages Advisory Committee which was appointed by the Treasury was set up in accordance with the recomendation contained in Section 124 of the Report of the Fair-Wages Committee. The recommendation was that an advisory committee should be formed of representatives of the contracting departments. The Committee has sat since 1909, and as at present advised I do not propose to make any alteration in its personnel.
