§ Mr. HICKS
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will shortly be in a position to give the result of the consideration by the various Departments of proposals for the amendment and extension of the principle of the Fair Wages Resolution of the House of Commons, put forward by the Trades Union Congress General Council in 1930; and whether that consideration has included a proposal recently put forward by the same body for the extension of the principle of fair wages to cover workers engaged in making or fixing materials used in contracts already covered by a fair wages clause?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
Consideration is being given to all the proposals mentioned by the hon. Member, including the point referred to in the second part of the question, but I am not yet in a position to say when it will be possible to give the results of this consideration.
