HC Deb 05 May 1913 vol 52 cc1692-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has placed any contract with the British-Fibro Cement Works, of Erith, Kent; and, if so, whether in connection with the engineers employed by the firm, the Fair-Wages Clause is being carried out?

Colonel SEELY

This firm holds a contract for the War Office, which contains the Fair-Wages Clause. No complaint of infringement has been received, but if there is held to be cause for complaint, the matter shall be investigated. I shall be glad if my hon. Friend can furnish me with full particulars.
