HC Deb 06 December 1911 vol 32 c1402

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the desirability of introducing a Bill at an early date to reduce the hours of labour allowed for young persons and women in non-textile factories to those allowed in textile factories?


The legislation suggested in the question would involve an important amendment of the Factory Acts and, as I stated in reply to a question by the Noble Lord on 23rd November, I am not in a position at present to make any statement as to future factory legislation.
