§ Mr. MacLAREN
asked the Minister of Labour the number of hours worked by, and the weekly wage paid to, the women employed in the pottery stoneware trade in Scotland?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I have no official information regarding the hours and wages of women employed in this trade. I understand, However, that until 30th September last the conditions were regulated by an agreement between the employers' and workers' representatives, and that, since the termination of that agreement, negotiations have been proceeding for the settlement of the conditions in the trade.
