§ MR. BRADLAUGH (Northampton)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he will reconsider the approval given to the refusal of the Chief Inspector of Factories to prosecute under the Truck Act where fines have been deducted from workmen's wages; and whether he will cause fresh instructions on this head to 1032 be issued to the Inspectors of Mines and Inspectors of Factories?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. MATTHEWS) (Birmingham, E.)
I will promise the hon. Member to consult the Law Officers on the point of law raised by him; and I will act on their opinion when I have received it.
