HC Deb 19 March 1912 vol 35 c1709

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the findings of the Committee which investigated the working of the Truck Act, he intends to introduce legislation for the abolition of the system of fines imposed on employés by employers in factories and workshops?


I am afraid there is no prospect of legislation on this subject being introduced by the Government during the present Session; but I must point out to the hon. Member that the findings of the Committee were against the proposal for the entire abolition of fines.
