HC Deb 03 March 1938 vol 332 cc1267-8
26. Mr. James Hall

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the advisability of terminating the system of employing on nightwork boys of 16 years of age who have been placed on probation with a condition of residence in a hostel?

Sir S. Hoare

I am not aware of any system of placing boys from probation hostels in employment involving night-work, and I believe much care is taken to find suitabe work for probationers. If the hon. Member has in mind some particular case and will send me particulars, I will consider them.

Mr. Hall

I shall be pleased to supply particulars to the right hon. Gentleman of night work being given to boys under those conditions.

Forward to
