HC Deb 08 October 1942 vol 383 c1382W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Labour whether his Department has any up-to-date and comprehensive statistics with regard to the total emoluments, including board, lodging and gratuities of employees in the hotel and restaurant industry, and how such earnings compare with wages paid in the distributive trades as a whole; and, if not, whether he will set up an inquiry to obtain such information before introducing legislation?

Mr. Bevin

The reply to both parts of the Question is in the negative.
