§ Mr. HODGE
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East, as representing the First Commissioner of Works, whether, when inviting tenders for contracts, the Office of Works invites a firm to tender if it is known that the firm in its treatment of its employés does not come up to the standard required by the Fair-Wages Clause?
§ Mr. WEDGWOOD BENN
Before issuing invitations to tender, the Office of Works always obtains from contractors a written undertaking that they will abide by the terms of the Fair-Wages Resolution.
