§ 87. Mr. Wedgwood Benn
asked the Minister of Labour the average weekly wage of the workers in the Remploy (Special) Factory, Southmead, Bristol; and whether he will consider an increase to meet the rising cost of living.
§ Mr. Robens
As some of the workers on account of their disability do less than a full week, the average payment to all workers in the factory is £4 15s. a week. The average wage paid to men working a 44 hour week is £5 9s. Any question of variation of wage rates is for the consideration of the Company.
