§ Mr. Liddall
asked the President of the Board of Trade why women railway workers have to give up 12 coupons per annum without receiving comparable return in uniform garments; and whether he is now prepared to make them a concession?
§ Mr. Dalton
I have already reduced to eight the number of coupons which uniformed women railway workers have to give up. In return for these coupons, these workers receive coupon-free, on joining the railways, an outfit of uniform worth at least 36 coupons, and they get replacements coupon-free when the garments are worn out.
