HC Deb 28 April 1926 vol 194 cc2047-8W

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in connection with the dissolution of the Grocery and Provisions Trade Board, lie will now state the date on which he will make the special Order required under Section 1 (3) of the Trade Boards Act, 1918, to withdraw for the present the grocery and provisions trade from the application of the Trade Boards Acts?


As at present advised, my right hon. Friend does not propose to make a special Order for the purpose indicated in the question.

Lieut.-Colonel WATTS-MORGAN

asked Vile Minister of Labour what were the quartiles and medians of the wages of male and female workers of the ages of 14 years, 18 years, 21 years, and 25 years and over respectively, as shown by the investigation made into wages in the grocery trade in 1919–20?


No detailed investigation of wages in the grocery trade was made in 1919–20. It is therefore not possible to give the information which the hon. and gallant Member desires.
