HC Deb 11 November 1920 vol 134 cc1397-8W

asked the Minister of Food if flour mill salesmen or travellers have been granted increase of pay amounting to only 120 per cent, while flour mill operatives have had their pay increased by 250 per cent.; and will he take steps to increase the pay of travellers to correspond with that of other workers and the higher cost of living?


The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. The salaries payable to flour mill salesmen or travellers are left to the individual discretion of the controlled millers concerned—subject only to approval by the Flour Mills Control.
