asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that a number of men employed at a factory, of which he has been informed, whose wages are £2 19s. per working week of 48 hours, have to pay 12s. per week travelling expenses; and whether he will take steps to make arrangements to meet this expenditure?
