HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1723W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the advisability, of suspending or amending the Order relating to wages of dressmakers, as issued by him under the Wages (Temporary Regulations) Act, particularly in regard to learners and juniors; whether he is cognisant of the fact that the retention and enforcement of the Order in its present form will have the result of greatly increasing unemployment; and whether he will suspend the Order until the trade board, now under contemplation, has been set up?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave to a similar question put by the hon. and gallant Member for Central Aberdeenshire on the 19th May.
