§ 103. Mr. Hopkinson
asked the Secretary of State for War what representations he has received from the Transport and General Workers' Union concerning the rates of pay of employees at No. 3 Supply Reserve Depot, Taunton; and what steps he proposes to take in regard to the present minimum wage rate of the employees of this depot.
§ Mr. Strachey
An instruction authorising certain increases of pay was issued by the War Office on 25th June. There was some delay before the increase was paid to the employees at No. 3 Supply Reserve Depot, Taunton, and I regret that it should have been necessary for the Transport and General Workers' Union to make representations to the Department.
