HC Deb 12 February 1930 vol 235 c436W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade, as representing the Forestry Commissioners the number of men employed on Lennox Moor; the average weekly wages of those men; and what provision is made for them when the weather is unfavourable for their work?


The number of men employed by the Forestry Commission on Lennox Moor is five. The average weekly wages of these men has been 38s. 3d. When weather conditions are unsuitable for work on the moor, the men are employed on scrub clearing and brush burning. When the weather stops work entirely, the men who report for duty receive their normal weekly wage less one-twelfth.
