Mr. Hume

said, that the commissioners appointed to inquire into the state of the children employed in factories had not yet made their report, and he wished to know if they were soon likely to do so.

Mr. F. Maule

replied, that the commissioners were assiduously engaged in the duty which they had undertaken to perform, and he hoped that the several reports of the sub-commissioners would speedily be given in, and would as speedily be followed by the general report.
