HC Deb 16 November 1933 vol 281 c1152W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty when consideration was last given to the possibility of instituting a scheme for sick leave with pay to established men in His Majesty's Dockyards; and whether he can now look into the possibility of making this concession in order to bring Admiralty civil servants into line with the majority of other civil servants in this respect?


The trade union side of the Admiralty Industrial Council raised the matter on behalf of Admiralty industrial workers generally on 19th October and stated that similar applications were being made at other Departmental Councils and that it was intended to pursue the matter at the Joint Co-ordinating Committee for Government Industrial Establishments. I think this question can best be dealt with under the existing negotiating machinery.
