HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 c1465
109. Mr. BROOKES

asked the Minister of Munitions whether adequate steps have been taken to ensure, by control and supervision, the welfare of boys employed in national and Government-controlled factories; and, in that case, will he state the nature of the arrangements made, not only with reference to the health and education of these boys, but also with regard to the inculcation of the principles of thrift?


Steps have been and are being taken by the Welfare Section of the Ministry to ensure the supervision of the welfare of boys engaged in controlled establishments. Supervisors have been appointed in a number of cases, and every aspect of the question, including the encouragement of thrift, is receiving full consideration.
