HC Deb 18 May 1899 vol 71 cc927-8
MR. J. G. TALBOT (Oxford University)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received applications for the making of an order for particulars (under the Act (58 & 59 Vict., c. 37) relating to the pen trade; and, if so, whether he is prepared favourably to consider such applications.


I have not received any such application; but in consequence of complaints which reached the inspectors inquiries are now being made with regard to "particulars" in the pen trade.
