HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2374W

asked the Home Secretary if he has considered the Report of the recent Committee appointed to inquire into the question of night work in the bread-baking and flour confectionery trade; and whether it is the intention of the Government to legislate on the lines of the Report of the Committee?


Yes, Sir; my right hon. Friend has considered this question in the light of the Committee's Report. As he stated, however, in reply to a similar question on the 26th of last month, he is afraid that, as the subject has become controversial, ho cannot hold out any hope of legislation this Session.
