Mr. T. WILSON
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware that Messrs. Nutting and Company, contractors, who are doing work for the War Office, refuse to pay the men in their employment at the proper rate for the overtime they work, the overtime worked being three hours per day; and whether he will take steps to compel this firm to pay for overtime worked at the proper rate, and also arrears of pay for all overtime worked for which the overtime rate has not been paid?
§ Mr. FORSTER
No complaint of the character referred to has been received by the War Office. Inquiry is being made into the matter.
