§ 34. Colonel Lord HENRY CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked whether Mr. Chester Jones has yet made a Report on his inquiry at Bradford on the proposal put forward by the chamber of commerce in favour of the reduction of the school-leaving age to thirteen years as a means of meeting the shortage of labour in the spinning industry; and whether it will be published as a Parliamentary Paper?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Brace)
I am informed by Mr. Chester Jones that a settlement has been reached locally, and in the circumstances I do not think it will be necessary to ask him to submit any formal Report.
