§ SIR C. DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the time has now come when he can lay before the House the Report on shuttleguards promised by him?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
A complete return cannot yet be given; and, moreover, in consequence of the progress that is being made with the fencing of looms, the figures are materially changing, and any return would need repeated revision. So far, however, as can be stated at present, over 80 per cent. of the more rapid looms are already provided with guards.
