HC Deb 07 May 1906 vol 156 c949
MR. STUART-WORTLEY (Sheffield, Hallam)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it has been brought to his notice that the limit requiring five persons to be employed in order to obtain the benefits of the Workmen's Compensation Bill will have the effect of excluding large numbers of persons following the occupation of farriers; and whether he proposes to modify the Bill for the purpose of meeting this particular case.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) Yes, Sir; I have received communications to this effect. It appears to me that farriers would, save in very exceptional cases, be included in the Bill as drawn; but the point is now under my consideration.
