Mr. TYSON WILSON
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that a storekeeper named Knight, employed in the loan tool stores at Portsmouth Dockyard, is receiving a wage of 21s. per week, while storekeepers in other departments in the yard are paid 24s.; and whether he will take steps to bring this man's wage up to 24s. per week?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Mr. Knight is a labourer performing an ordinary labourer's work under the supervision of a store-houseman. He receives the ordinary wages of a labourer, namely, 22s. a week, and will participate in the recently granted rise to 23s. a week from 1st June.
