§ Mr. SALTER
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether unskilled labourers employed in the Army Ordnance Department at Woolwich are to have an increase of pay with a minimum wage of 24s. a week; and whether he will give consideration to the case of unskilled labourers working in the Army Ordnance Department at Aldershot, where the minimum wage at present is 19s. a week, with a view to granting them an increase at least as great, having regard to the high cost of living in Aldershot and the surrounding district?
§ Mr. ACLAND
The reply to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The case of the unskilled labourer at Aldershot is still under consideration.
