HC Deb 13 February 1866 vol 181 c448

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether, viewing the deplorable condition of the Children employed in many of the Trades in Sheffield and other towns, it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to introduce a measure for regulating the Employment and securing the Education of those Children.


replied, that his hon. Friend the Under Secretary for the Home Department intended to give notice on an early day of his intention to ask leave to introduce a Bill to give effect to some further recommendations, beyond those which had already formed the subject of legislation, made by the Commission on the employment of women and children.
