HC Deb 23 July 1923 vol 167 c38W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will cause inquiries to be made into the operation of Order No. 959, factory and workshop welfare, in respect of the oil mill workers employed by Messrs. Lever Brothers, in the Birkenhead area; whether he is aware that a claim made on behalf of such workers for protective clothing by way of overalls, agreed upon by employers and workpeople in the industry, has been ignored by the firm in question; and whether he will take the matter up with the firm so that the Order may be carried out in every detail and according to the custom prevailing in that district?


I have no information at present in regard to the matter referred to in this question. Inquiries will be made and the result communicated to the hon. Member.
