§ Mr. W. BAKER
asked the hon. Member for the Gorton Division, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, what provision has been made, or will be made, for the employment or maintenance during the Recess of the men and women employed by his Committee in the dining and refreshment rooms of the House?
§ Mr. COMPTON
In reply to the question of the hon. Member, I presume that the Kitchen Committee will pay the usual retaining allowances and Recess wages to the. 35 members of the refreshment department staff regarded as being regularly employed. The remainder, who are engaged each Session as required, will terminate their engagement when the House rises for the summer vacation.
