§ SIR CHARLES DILKE () Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department at what date in the present session the Report of the Chief Inspector of Factories and Workshops will be in the hands of Members.
§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. COCHRANE,) Ayrshire, N.
The preparation of this Report involves heavy personal labour for the Chief Inspector. Important though it is, it cannot be done at the expense of other matters requiring his attention, upon which there are just now particularly urgent demands, especially; in connection with the inquiry into the draft regulations for Docks. He will, however, endeavour—though it is impossible to make any promise, to have the Report ready by about the same date as last year, i.e., early in June.
