§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Air how many times a contractor is permitted to break the Fair 1388W Wages Clause before he is struck off the list?
§ Sir S. HOARE
If a contractor refused to rectify a breach, established by investigation, of the Fair Wages Clause, his name would be removed from the list.
§ Mr. CECIL WILSON
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is a condition of all contracts that a fair-wages notice shall be exhibited on the works; if so, what steps are taken by the Department to see that this condition is observed; and whether such notice is now exhibited in the case of all contracts running?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
A condition is included in all contracts stipulating that the Clause must be exhibited during the execution of the work. No special steps are taken to check its observance. I have no reason to believe that this condition is not observed generally, but should be glad to inquire into any case of non-observance which may be brought to my notice.
