§ Mr. JOHN WARD
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether the particulars clause of the Factory Acts applies to factories where the linen branch of the textile trade is carried on at Dunfermline; and, if not, will his Department undertake to introduce legislation to place that district under the particulars law applying to cotton operatives?
§ Mr. McKENNA
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. The particulars provisions of the Act already apply to the linen trade. They are applied by the Act itself to all textile factories, and they have been extended by Home Office Orders to the bleaching and dyeing and the making-up trades.
