HC Deb 22 July 1935 vol 304 c1491W

asked the Minister of Labour particulars of the present standard rate of wages in the trap industry in South Staffordshire?


My information is that the rates of wages of the several classes of workpeople engaged in the making of field traps in South Staffordshire are arranged between the individual employers and their employés; and I have no detailed information as to the rates of wages actually paid. It is understood that the number of workpeople concerned is about 100, most of whom are members of the Spring Trap Makers' Society.
