HC Deb 20 December 1935 vol 307 c2161W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that the Bristol Aeroplane Company, Limited, is engaged on work for the Government; what steps are taken to see that the fairwages clause is carried out by this company; and is he aware of the wage rates operating in the works of the Bristol Aeroplane Company, Limited?


The company is engaged on work for the Air Ministry, and the fair-wages clause is included in all its contracts. No representations as to non-observance of this clause have been received, but if the hon. Member has any specific complaint in mind and will send me particulars, I will have the matter investigated.
