§ Lieut.-Commander Tufnell
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury for what reason it was recently decided to grant an increase in the bonus paid to industrial civil servants employed in His Majesty's dockyards and other similar places; and whether he is prepared to consider making a similar proportionate increase in the wages of all civil servants.727W
§ Captain Crookshank
Increases in the wages of industrial employés in His Majesty's dockyards and other Government establishments have been granted in pursuance of the Government's undertaking to observe in the regulation of such wages the principles of the Fair Wages Resolution of the House of Commons. As regards the latter part of the Question, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to my hon. Friend the Member for the Rusholme Division of Manchester (Mr. Radford) on 2nd April.
