§ Mrs. Beatrice Wright
asked the Minister of Labour whether the committee set up to investigate the shortage of domestic help in hospitals and institutions will also be empowered to report on the shortage of home helps?
§ Mr. McCorquodale
The terms of reference of the committee in question are limited to recommendations as to the minimum wages and conditions to be recognised in any special arrangements made for the supply of domestic workers in hospitals and other institutions. It would not therefore be appropriate to extend its activities in the manner suggested.
