HC Deb 22 December 1954 vol 535 c276W
22. Major Wall

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the weekly rates of pay of industrial grades of workpeople employed in Her Majesty's dockyards.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

My hon. and gallant Friend will appreciate that the Admiralty employs a great many industrial grades of workpeople at dockyards in the United Kingdom. For the main grouping, ranges of weekly pay rates are as follows:

Craftsmen 147s. 10d. to 179s. 10d.
Titular grades 147s. 10d. to 156s. 10d.
Skilled labourers 131s. 10d. to 146s. 10d.
Unskilled labourers 127s. 10d.

Various assumptions have had to be made about allowances, and there may be grades whose pay falls outside the ranges given.
