HC Deb 12 June 1906 vol 158 c819

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the annual cost of the statistical branch of the Factory Department.


The cost of the staff of the Factory Statistical Branch in the financial year 1905–6 was £1,460. I should add that a certain amount of clerical work connected with the administration of the Factory Act is done by this branch in addition to the collection and tabulation of statistics.
