HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 c2788W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will state, for men and women, respectively, employed in the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes in the Aldershot Command, the number employed inside; the number employed outside; the number receiving over £3 per week in wages; and the number receiving less than that figure?


These employés are not paid from public funds. Their wages are fixed by the Board of management of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes in its proper discretion. As I stated on the 20th March in reply to the hon. Member for West Nottingham, if there is reason to think that fair wages are not being paid and evidence in support of that view is communicated to me I shall be happy to make inquiry; but I regret that I am unable to give the details now asked for.
