HC Deb 28 February 1917 vol 90 cc2045-6W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that, as a result of the exposure of the wages paid by the War Office to their employés at remount depots in Dublin, the wages were increased from 17s. a week to 26s. a week for seven days; if he is aware that the employé, William Murray, alleged to be responsible for the exposure and its subsequent result, has been dismissed from his employment; if he will say whether the Government will allow their officials in Dublin to follow the lead of sweating em- ployers by victimising employés who fight for a living wage; and if Murray will be reinstated?


I am informed that William Murray was discharged for bad time keeping and frequent absence from work.
