HC Deb 14 February 1924 vol 169 c1016W

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is his intention to grant to local authorities carrying out unemployed schemes of work the right to pay full trade union wages to unskilled labourers in those cases where they are now compelled to pay not more than 75 per cent. of such wages as a condition of obtaining financial assistance from national funds?


As I have already stated, I hope to be able to make a definite statement on this matter on Wednesday next.
