HC Deb 12 July 1910 vol 19 c185

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give the number of notices received by factory inspectors in accordance with Section 60 of The Factory Act, 1901, from occupiers of florists' workshops availing themselves of the special exceptions gazetted in October, 1908, namely, to observe separate meal times for different persons and to employ women overtime; and the number of overtime notices received for the whole country during the twelve months ending December last?

Mr. McKENNA (for Mr. Churchill)

There has not been time since the hon. Member put down his question to obtain the information for the whole of the country, but the figures for the five districts centred at London have been got out and will perhaps be sufficient. They are as follows: Number of overtime exception notices, twenty-one, five of which have been received this year; number of meal-time notices, twenty; number of overtime reports during 1909, sixty-one.


Cannot the right hon. Gentleman give information as to the last two items?

Sir J. D. REES

Will the right hon. Gentleman have this answer printed with the Votes?


I have given all the information I have. It will be printed in the OFFICIAL REPORT in the usual way, among the Answers and Questions.
