§ Mr. BROMFIELD
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the non-payment in a number of districts of the increase in wages and back pay due to railwayman under the terms of the January settlement; and what steps he proposes to take to expedite payment, in view of the serious discontent caused by the delay?
§ Mr. NEAL
In order to give effect to the general settlement agreed upon in January it has been necessary to work out, in conjunction with the men's representatives, a great many details such as1318W the classification of stations, and this has occasioned some delay. Rapid progress has been made with this work and it is hoped that it may be completed at an early date.
