§ 33. Mr. BURNETT
asked the Minister of Agriculture the rates of salary paid to the 10 meat markers referred to in Class VI, page 82, of the Civil Estimates; and whether these meat markers have additional duties beyond the stamping of the meat when it has been graded?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The average weekly inclusive wages of the 10 meat markers are £3 3s. 8d. In addition to marking the graded beef, the markers give general assistance to the graders in wholesale meat markets and private slaughterhouses.
