§ 79. Mr. ANDERSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been directed to a dispute which has been in progress since the beginning of October at the works of Messrs. G. J. Mason and Company, Glasgow, caused by the dismissal of twenty-five girls who objected to a reduction in rates on solidiers' tunics; and what action it is proposed to take?
The Chief Industrial Commissioner's Department have made inquiry of Messrs. Mason and Company, who state that there is no dispute, the girls in question having been discharged for bad behaviour. The firm state that there has been no reduction in prices.
