§ 38. Mr. Denman
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can indicate the form of inquiry he proposes as to what revision of the law relating to the employment of children and young persons is necessitated by the prospective passage of the Education Bill.
§ The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)
As I stated on 4th April, the Home Secretary proposes to review the whole question of the law relating to the employment of children as expeditiously as possible, and one of the first steps which will be taken for this purpose will be to collect from local education authorities full and up-to-date information.
§ Mr. Denman
Do we understand that there will be no formal inquiry but simply a departmental investigation?
