HC Deb 22 May 1912 vol 38 c2043W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the laundry trade, which conies third on the list in the number of female hands employed in the non-textile trades of this country, has been refused a representative on the Advisory Committee to the Insurance Commissioners; and whether he will recommend the appointment of a representative of that trade, seeing that trades employing a lesser number of hands are represented?


A laundry manageress, who was recommended by the Federation of Laundry Associations, was appointed a member of the English Advisory Committee on 16th April.
