HC Deb 29 March 1867 vol 186 cc818-9

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether it is his intention to introduce any Compulsory Educational Clauses in the Bill for regulating the hours of labour in workshops? He should also be glad to know whether, if such Clauses are to be proposed, they will be laid upon the table of the House before the Easter recess?


said, in reply, that he meant to introduce educational clauses into the Bill; but he thought that the most convenient opportunity for his stating the nature of those clauses would be on the Motion for their going into Committee on the measure.
