HC Deb 06 November 1912 vol 43 cc1263-4

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the resolution adopted by the International Association for Labour Legislation at Zurich, recommending, inter alia, that legislation should be introduced to abolish the whole system of fines and deductions from wages and to prohibit employers from charging either factory workers or home workers for materials used in the process of manufacture; and, if so, whether he proposes to introduce the Truck Bill embodying these resolutions?


I have received a copy of the resolution referred to in the question. I hope, as I said in the course of the Debate in the summer on the Home Office Estimates, to be able to introduce a Truck Bill next Session, but I cannot make any further statement on the subject at present.
