asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what consideration has been given to the claim put forward last May by the civilian employes in the Army Ordnance Department at Stirling for an increase of wages?
§ Mr. CROOKS
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether the foremen in the Army Ordnance Department are to participate in the bonus recently awarded to Civil servants; if not, whether he is aware that these men, being Civil servants, have not participated in the war bonus granted to the general workers; and whether, in view of this, he will reconsider their claim to participate in the bonus now granted to the whole of the lower paid Civil Service?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I hope shortly to make an announcement regarding the Ordnance Department foremen at Woolwich.
