HC Deb 09 January 1913 vol 46 c1399W

asked the Home Secretary whether he has considered the references in the last issued Report of the Chief Inspector of Factories to the danger and frequent accidents to boys in iron foundries carrying molten metal; and whether he will make a special Order under the Factory Acts to regulate this labour and diminish the numerous accidents at present occurring?


The whole question of accidents in foundries, including the point referred to by my hon. Friend, is now being considered at conferences between the Department and the representatives of the employers and workmen. Until the conferences are completed, I cannot say what action may require to be taken by the Department.
