HC Deb 20 April 1944 vol 399 c385W
Mr. R. Duckworth

asked the Minister of Labour if he can make any statement on the progress and activities of the Catering Wages Commission.

Mr. E. Bevin

In accordance with Section 2 (1) (d) of the Catering Wages Act the Commission will in due course submit a report on their proceedings which will be laid before Parliament. Meanwhile, I may say that the Commission have made a recommendation for the establishment of a Wages Board for Industrial and Staff Canteens, and as I stated in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenger) on 16th March I have made an Order establishing a Wages Board.
