HC Deb 23 February 1922 vol 150 c2137W

asked the Minister of Labour if he has received any communications from the workers engaged in the cloth hat, cap and millinery trades with regard to sweating in the Manchester district and the inadequate number of Trade Board inspectors in the northwestern area; whether numerous complaints in this area have not been investigated owing to the lack of inspectors; and whether the appointment of additional inspectors is being considered so as to enable the proper carrying out of the Trade Boards Act in this district?
