§ Considered in Committee.
§ (In the Committee.)
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That it is expedient to authorise the payment, out of moneys to be provided by Parliament, of any Expense incurred 1151 by the Secretary of State in any inquiry under the provisions of any Act of the present session to amend the Factory and Workshop Acts."—(Mr. Secretary Ritchie.)
§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That the Chairman do report progress; and ask leave to sit again."—(Mr. Patrick O'Brien.)
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. RITCHIE, Croydon)
I hope the hon. Member will not object. The Bill merely authorises the payment of necessary expenses connected with holding an inquiry under the new procedure set up by the Bill.
§ MR. CALDWELL (Lanarkshire, Mid)
On former occasions we passed this sort of thing without a resolution of the House.
§ Committee to sit again upon Monday next.
