HC Deb 24 October 1912 vol 42 c2390W

asked the Secretary of State for War, whether the Fair-Wages Clause is included in the contract for the painting of Colchester barracks; whether painters employed there on overtime and on Sundays are only receiving the ordinary day rate of wages; whether his attention was called to the matter on the 11th September last; and what steps he has taken?


Inquiry has been made and the Report furnished states that the painters have been paid at the rate of time and a half for work on Saturday after 1 p.m. and at the rate of double time for work on Sunday.
