asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether the recent wage increases granted to workers in the shipbuilding industry will be made available to personnel in Her Majesty's Dockyards; and whether these increases will be dated back to the date of the award in private shipbuilding yards.
§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
A claim for a general increase in wages for the work people employed in Her Majesty's Dockyards is being discussed on the Shipbuilding Trades Joint Council. Negotiations are still in progress.
