asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, What is the daily average of prisoners employed in mat making for the year ending 31st March, 1888?

THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. STUART-WORTLEY)(who replied) (Sheffield, Hallam) said

The Returns are not yet complete enough to enable me to give my hon. Friend the exact figure. I expect, however, that it will turn out to have been somewhere about 1,550.
