§ MR. SOAMES (Norfolk, S.)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether Her Majesty's Government intend during the present Session to introduce a Bill to extend the scope of the Workmen's Compensation Act so as to include the agricultural labourer?
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. J. A. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
The Act has only been in operation since last July, and we do not propose to deal with it in the course of the present Session.
