HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 c1304W
Mr. Mainwaring

asked the Prime Minister whether he is prepared to move for the appointment of a Select Committee for the purpose of determining a minimium wage-level for all adult labourers employed in the United Kingdom, based upon a reasonable standard of life?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir. Having regard to the great variety of factors to be taken into account I do not think this is a practicable method of procedure.
