HC Deb 12 March 1888 vol 323 c855
MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether it will be possible for a Joint Committee of both Houses to be appointed to inquire into the Sweating System; and, if not, whether the Government will undertake that the Lords Report shall be communicated to the Commons?


I am much obliged to the hon. Member for calling my attention to the matter; but, on inquiry, I find that it is now too late to adopt his suggestion. I will, however, take care that the suggestion made in the latter part of the Question is given effect to.
