§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If a Report has been made by the Chief Inspector of Factories, with reference to the complaints of alleged breaches of the Truck Acts in Scotland; and, if so, if he has any objections to supply copies to Members upon their application?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY) (Sheffield, Hallam)
Such a Report has been made; and the Home Secretary is still considering the question of the most convenient method of making known its contents to those hon. Members who are interested in the question.
§ In reply to Dr. CLARK (Caithness).
§ MR. STUART-WORTLEY
said: The question of its presentation to Parliament is being considered; but the House is aware that certain legal consequences sometimes attend the publication of matters alleging breaches of the law. A copy was shown to the junior Member for Northampton (Mr. Bradlaugh) by the Home Secretary in fulfilment of a promise given in this House; but I cannot, without Notice, say whether it has been shown to any other hon. Member.
