§ 47. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to pass the Factories Bill into law this Session?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)
I have been asked to reply. I have still further interviews and consultations before I can submit the proposed Bill to the Cabinet, but I hope to do so very shortly.
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
If the Minister is going to pass this Bill into law this Session, why does he make such heavy weather of it? Why does he not adopt the Bill of his Conservative predecessor in office, or is the present First Lord of the Admiralty considered to be too Socialistic for the present Home Secretary?
