HC Deb 24 July 1947 vol 440 cc1581-2
43. Mr. Granville Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes taking to prevent the employment of young persons in trades and occupations having an adverse effect on their welfare.

Mr. Ede

The matter is within the scope of the inquiry now being made by the Gowers Committee, as respects employments not covered by the Factories or Mines and Quarries Acts, and I shall give full weight to any recommendations they may make on this point.

Mr. Sharp

Can my right hon. Friend say when he expects to receive the Report?

Mr. Ede

Very shortly.
