§ 75. Mr. Joynson-Hicks
asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that female laundry workers aged 18 and employed in laundries doing 75 per cent. 188W of hospital work earned £2 8s. 9d. weekly up to 5th July, but since that date in the laundries taken over by the South Western Metropolitan Regional Hospital Board their wages have been increased to £3 15s. 11d. weekly; and if he is satisfied that this increase of over 50 per cent. has been justified by increased output.
