HC Deb 24 April 1928 vol 216 cc816-7W

asked the Minister of Labour the rate of wages for a normal week paid to men and women engaged in the plain net trade; and what increases, if any, in rates of wages have taken place in that trade since March, 1925?


Workpeople employed in the plain net trade are mainly pieceworkers, and no information is avail- able as regards time rates of wages except in the case of warpers at Nottingham for whom there is a recognised rate of 60s. for a week of 48 hours. There has been no general change in rates of wages since March, 1925.
