§ 28. Sir W. BYLES
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the protest of the Association of Head Mistresses against the practice of sending young girls into the streets to sell flowers, flags, and favours for charitable objects; and whether, having regard to the dangers of this practice, he will intervene to stop it?
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideration the fact that in many cases these young girls are sent out by charitable institutions?
§ Sir J. SIMON
I understand the present regulation prevents girls under sixteen going about the streets for these purposes unless accompanied by an older person, and the regulation under consideration is whether they should not be prohibited altogether.
