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.
