§ 26. Mr. FREDERICK WHYTE
asked why the Trade Boards Act has not been applied to the sweated industry of shirt-making?
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer upon this subject which my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade gave to the hon. Member for the St. Andrews Burghs on 10th July, of which I am sending him a copy. I may add that as my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Manchester was informed yesterday, my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade proposes at an early date to take into consideration the desirability of a cautious extension of the scope of the Trade Boards Act, when the case of shirt-making will be considered among others.
