§ Mr. CROOKS
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether the employés in the 2089W Naval Ordnance Department, Woolwich, are to participate in the extra rates of pay that have been fixed for the 7th and 8th of August; and can he state why these employés have not participated in the extra rates for previous holidays paid to Ordnance Factory employés?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
As the holidays with pay, fixed for the 7th and 8th"August have now been postponed till later on in the year, those days become ordinary working days, and will be paid for as such. I should add that the employés in the Naval Ordnance Department, Woolwich Arsenal, are not governed by the Ordnance Factory Regulations, but by the Army Ordnance Regulations.
