§ Mr. WILKIE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the report issued by the Trades Council of Birmingham regarding the unsatisfactory conditions under which the baking trade is carried on in that town; and, considering the efforts that have been made to have the conditions improved in the interest not only of the employés, but of the good employers and the community generally, will he take action to have those conditions improved?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Sydney Buxton)
My attention has been drawn to the report referred to by my hon. Friend, and I will confer with the Secretary of State for the Home Department and the President of the Local Government Board.
