asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the inconvenience that will be caused in small seaside hotels and boarding houses by the new wages regulations for unlicensed hotels being introduced in June when the holiday season is just beginning; and what steps he is taking to make these regulations as easy as possible to understand and carry out.

The Unlicensed Residential Establishment Wages Board, which was set up in July, 1946, issued its first proposals for establishing minimum rates on 8th February, 1949. These proposals have not yet been submitted to me. I appreciate that the wages regulation order may be complicated and I am considering how best my Department will be able to assist in explaining its provisions.
