HC Deb 30 July 1877 vol 236 cc165-6

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Depart- ment, Whether it is the intention of the Government to proceed with the Factories and Workshops Bill during the present Session; and, if so, if he can inform the House when they propose to move the Second Reading of the Bill?

MR. ASSHETON CROSS, in reply, said, the Chancellor of the Exchequer had given Notice that he would that day state the intention of the Government with regard to certain Bills, among which, he was sorry to say, the Bill named would find a place. It would be brought forward at an early period next Session.
