HC Deb 27 February 1914 vol 58 c2112W
Captain CRAIG

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received a petition from the lighthouse-keepers in the service of the Commissioners of Irish Lights in reference to an increase of salaries; and whether it has been sympathetically considered?


The petition in question, with similar ones from the light-keepers in the service of the Trinity House and the Commissioners of Northern Lighthouses, has formed the subject of consideration by the three General Lighthouse Authorities jointly, and these have submitted proposals to the Board of Trade. I hope to be able to give a decision at an early date.
