§ 86. Captain Duncan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what are the reasons for increasing the hiring charges for labour in Scotland from £5 11s. a week to £6 1s. a week; and whether he will give an assurance that this increased charge will be taken into consideration in the February price review next year.
§ Mr. T. Fraser
The increase in the charge has been made with a view to reducing the cost of the service to the Exchequer. All costs are taken into account at the annual price review.
