HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c423W

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he will state the number of hours per week during which women and children are permitted by law to work in cotton factories in India?


In textile factories in India women are permitted to work eleven and children six hours daily. All operatives enjoy one day's holiday in the week, except in the case of urgent or special work, such as cleaning or repairs.
