§ Brigadier-General WIGAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if the is aware that the minimum wage at Milton is 55s. per week for unskilled labour whilst at Didcot the minimum wage is 47s. 6d. per week; why a different rate is paid for similar work in the same neighbourhood; and can he state the numbers employed on unskilled labour at each of the above places?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am in communication with the Air Ministry with regard to the rate paid for unskilled labour at their depot at Milton, and as soon as inquiries are complete I will inform my hon. and gallant Friend of the result.
