HC Deb 01 April 1925 vol 182 cc1325-6W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can state, in respect of the recent Supplementary Estimates giving effect to the decision of the Courts in regard to civil pay and bonus arising out of the Sutton judgment and kindred cases, how much has been paid to employés in Devonport dockyard; what were the categories of employés who have received money; and what is the average sum paid to each beneficiary?


The sum of £24,324 has been paid up to this date in Devon port dockyard. The grades concerned at the time of calling up were chiefly skilled and ordinary labourers, yard boys, apprentices and boy writers. The average amount per head is roughly £60.
