HC Deb 14 April 1964 vol 693 c49W
Miss Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many unskilled labourers are employed in Her Majesty's Dockyard, Devonport; what is the basic weekly wage: and how many do not get any overtime.

Mr. Hay

There are about 740 unskilled labourers employed in Her Majesty's Dockyard, Devonport. The present basic wage of these workers, as from 1st April, 1964, is £10 3s. 0d. per week. Most of the unskilled labourers have the opportunity of working some overtime.

I regret that it is not possible from the available records to distinguish readily how many of these men receive no overtime payments in any given period.
