HC Deb 20 December 1906 vol 167 c1681
MR. JENKINS (Chatham)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that complaints have been lodged by the Army Clothing Tailoresses' Association regarding bolts protruding from the forms tearing their dresses and aprons; whether he is aware that the manager of the factory has given orders for the bolts to be removed; and can he state when such order was given and how much of the work has been done during the past fortnight.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) A deputation of the Tailoresses Association drew attention to this matter on the 23rd ultimo. A general overhauling of the forms is now being made, and, so far, twenty have had to be remedied.
