HC Deb 19 February 1907 vol 169 c704
*MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Indian whether the expert sent out to examine factories in India will remain in that country through the hot weather and rains as well as during the cold season, in order to the necessary appreciation of the various conditions of Indian factory labour under various climatic conditions.


The Answer is in the negative. It is anticipated that the inquiry will be completed within the next two months, and it is very desirable that the results should be in the hands of the Government of India with as little delay as possible.
