HC Deb 24 April 1891 vol 352 cc1318-9
MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)

I wish to ask the Under Secretary of State for India if he will give a Return, in addition to the Return already presented to the House, showing the operation of the Factory Law in India? What I want is a Return that shall show what the alterations in the law have been.


The Return which I have already given to the House shows, I believe, the changes which have been made in the law, as well as the existing law.


If the right hon. Gentleman will look at the Return, I think he will find that it is only the changes in the law which are given and not a comparison between them and the law as it stood previously.


If the hon. Member will put a question on the Paper, I shall be happy to give him all the information he may require on any point he can suggest.
