HC Deb 23 March 1914 vol 60 cc57-8W

asked the Secretary for War whether the firm of Messrs. C. and E. Morton, Millwall, are contractors to the War Office; if so, whether he is aware that a trade dispute is in progress there against the employment of juvenile labour on work usually done by adults; and Whether he will have inquiries made and take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that the Fair-Wages Clause is complied with, and that the present cessation of work at the factory in the tinning of food does Dot result in the supply to the Department of food unfit for consumption?

Colonel SEELY

This firm does not hold any War Office contract.
