HC Deb 04 August 1909 vol 8 cc1842-3
Mr. MOONEY (on behalf of Mr. Clancy)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how often during the past 12 months the inspectors of factories have visited the works of the Great Southern and Western Railway of Ireland at Inchicore, Dublin; whether it is part of the duty of those inspectors to inquire into allegations of sweating in such establishments; and, if so, whether they have made any reports on that subject?


Five visits have been paid by the inspectors of factories to these works within the last 12 months. It is not part of the duties of the inspectors to inquire as to the wages paid.
