HC Deb 22 February 1924 vol 169 c2167W

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that the firm of T. and J. Tinkers, Limited, Holmforth, are contractors for cloth for the Government; is he aware that this firm is continually breaking the regulations of the Joint Industrial Council for the wool and allied textile industry regarding the 48-hour working week and labour conditions generally; and will he take steps to see that the firm carry out such regulations or, failing this, to remove them from the list of Government contractors?


The question of a breach of contract under the Fair Wages Clause is a matter which my hon. Friend should take up with the contracting Department concerned.
