HC Deb 22 July 1937 vol 326 cc2398-9
36. Mr. Short

asked the Home Secretary whether he proposes to increase the number of factory inspectors prior to the new Factory Act coming into operation; and, if so, by how many?

Sir S. Hoare

A substantial increase of the factory inspectorate will, as I have already stated, be necessary in consequence of the Factories Bill, but I am not yet in a position to say when this increase will take place.
