Mr. T. WILSON
asked the Minister of Munitions whether the Avro Aeroplane Company of Manchester is a controlled 1453W firm; if so, is he aware that until recently the firm paid its workmen a war bonus? which has now been stopped; and whether he will instruct this firm again to pay war bonus and the arrears of bonus due to the men?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The firm in question is not controlled and does not hold any contract under the Ministry of Munitions. In the circumstances I have no power to intervene.
