§ MR. ARTHUR HENDERSON
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether ho can give the number of firms convicted during 1906 for not complying with the Particulars Orders by neglecting to give proper particulars of wages to persons employed at their own homes.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
The hon. Member will find the information he desires on page 375 of the Annual Report of the Chief Inspector which has just been issued. Three cases were taken in respect of the failure to supply particulars to outworkers. Two resulted in convictions: one was dismissed on technical grounds.
