HC Deb 31 July 1939 vol 350 cc1976-7W
112. Mr. Leslie

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the extremely low wages paid by the Great Universal Stores, Limited, of Manchester, and the comments respecting same made by the stipendiary in a recent prosecution case; is he further aware of the action of the firm in dismissing employés who joined their appropriate union in order to improve conditions; and what action he intends taking to deal with the situation?

Mr. E. Brown

I have received representations on this matter from the trade union concerned and I am in communication with the employers on the various points raised.
