HC Deb 28 February 1918 vol 103 cc1580-1W

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that there are engineering firms in Dublin holding Government contracts who are not paying their boys and apprentices the war bonuses which they are entitled to; and if he will request the Secretary of the Engineers Employers' Federation to supply a return of war bonuses paid to boys and apprentices in all establishments controlled or run by members of his organisation?


As intimated to the hon. Member on 6th and 13th December, if he will bring to the notice of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Munitions, any specific instances where apprentices employed by members of the Engineering Employers' Federation holding Govern- ment contracts have not received any advances of wages to which they are entitled, investigation will be made.
