§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has received a communication signed by two shareholders in the Rhymney Iron Company, and by two tradesmen resident in Rhymney, alleging the persistent continuance of truck practices at Rhymney; and, whether any, and what, steps are being taken by the Inspector of Factories in the matter?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I have received such a communication, and counter-communications from the Directors of the Company. The whole matter has been referred to the Chief Inspector for full inquiry, and for such action as appears suitable when the facts are ascertained.
