§ 15. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, in spite of the Government's promise that the piecework prices of workmen once fixed should not be reduced unless the method of production were altered, Messrs. Waring and Gillow, contractors to the 1279 War Office, have persistently reduced piecework prices; and whether he will take steps to ensure that these reductions shall cease?
§ Mr. FORSTER
A complaint of this nature has been brought to my notice and I have also received a communication on it from the firm in question. I understand that the head of the firm will take an early opportunity of seeing my hon. Friend, and I hope that in this way it may be possible to reach a satisfactory solution of such difficulties as may exist.
