HC Deb 19 May 1949 vol 465 cc35-6W
68. Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Labour what regulations he proposes to make dealing with wages for employees in non-licensed hotels and boarding houses; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Ness Edwards

No proposals have yet been submitted by the Unlicensed Residential Establishment Wages Board.

69. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Minister of Labour if he is now in a position to make a statement on the effect on the hotel industry in Scotland of orders issued under the Catering Wages Act, 1943, particularly in the light of the Knox Report.

Mr. Ness Edwards

No. It is for the wages board concerned to propose any changes in the order. The board for licensed residential establishments has done so and my right hon. Friend has made a new order to give effect to their proposals as from 1st June.
