HC Deb 06 February 1913 vol 48 c56W

asked the Home Secretary whether it is his intention to, introduce a Bill to amend the Truck Acts; and, if so, whether he will make provision therein rendering it illegal for employers to make it a condition of employment that their workmen must live in houses owned by their employers, or that they must buy petrol, or any other commodity or article used in performing their work, from them?


I hope to introduce a Truck Bill next Session if the state of Parliamentary business permits, but I cannot give any pledge in the matter, nor can I make any statement as to the provisions of the Bill.
