asked the Minister of Works when the services of 23 British workmen employed by his Department in Shobdon camp, Herefordshire, will be dispensed with.

A great deal of work has to be done on this camp which contains 185 buildings and I cannot say when the services of these men will be dispensed with. After the camp has been prepared for occupation a number of men will remain to maintain it; others will use it as a base depot from which to work on other properties in the area.

asked the Minister of Works what is the highest, lowest and average wage paid by his Department to the British workmen employed at Shobdon camp.

The highest wage paid to a British workman at Shobdon camp is 2s. 11¾d. per hour, the lowest 2s. 2d. per hour and the average 2s. 4¾d. per hour.
