HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c671

asked the Secretary for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the dissatisfaction which exists amongst the mill and factory workers in Belfast in consequence of the operation of the system of fines for late attendance and other trivial offences which is being enforced by the employers; and whether he will direct the local factory inspectors to make representations on the system with a view to its mitigation or abolition?


Reports on the subject have been received from the factory inspectors, and inquiry into the matter is now proceeding.
