HC Deb 19 November 1941 vol 376 c357W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies when it is expected that wage ordinances will be established in Jamaica under the Minimum Wage Law, 1938; and the cause of the delay in so doing?

Mr. George Hall

The question whether, or when, orders fixing minimum rates of wages should be made under the Jamaica Minimum Wage Law, 1938, is a matter for the decision of the Governor in Privy Council under the law. So far as I am aware, it is not at present proposed to make any such order.
