§ 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.
