HC Deb 23 January 1918 vol 101 cc1001-2W
Colonel Sir F. HALL

asked the Minister of Munitions whether it is intended under the Munitions Act, 1917, to increase the remuneration of women time-workers?


An advance in wages for women on munitions work has recently been authorised, with effect from the first full pay after 15th December. The amount is 3s. 6d. per week for women and 1s. 9d. per week for girls. No distinction is made between time- and piece-workers. The advance will apply to the same establishments as previous advances.
