HC Deb 03 April 1876 vol 228 c1098

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If it be his intention to bring in a Bill this Session to extend the provisions of the Factory Acts to the Bleach works and Dyeworks of the United Kingdom; and, if so, when?


, in reply, said, that, from the information he had received, he gathered that the general feeling with regard to the extension of these Acts to bleachworks and dyeworks was that the matter, when dealt with, should be dealt with as a whole, and not piecemeal. That being so, his present intention was not to advise the Government to introduce a partial measure on the subject.
