HC Deb 06 February 1918 vol 101 cc2246-7W

asked the Minister of Labour when the insurance agents may expect to hear the result of inquiry into their demands for a living wage; if he will say what companies are represented at the inquiry; and if their decision will apply to all insurance companies in Great Britain and Ireland?


The first meeting of the Committee of Inquiry will take place tomorrow, 7th February; practically all the industrial assurance societies and collecting societies are represented. In regard to the last part, the Committee is one of inquiry; it will report to the Ministry of Labour, but it is not an Arbitration Tribunal, and will accordingly not give decisions.
