Mr. E. J. Williams

asked the First Commissioner of Works what has been the result of the negotiations over the wages at the Bridgend Royal Arsenal, and whether the position of labourers was considered with that of skilled men?

Sir P. Sassoon

I understand that the Grading Commission of the Joint Council for the Building Industry which has been considering the position has agreed that an increase of 1d. per hour for craftsmen, with a proportionate increase to the labourers, shall be put into force for six months as from the 25th November.
