HC Deb 21 July 1937 vol 326 c2219W
Mr. Leslie

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the revelations made in the report of the Chief Inspector of Factories as to the serious cases of illegal employment of boys between the ages of 14 and 17, he will consider the advisability of appointing additional inspectors?

Mr. Lloyd

The staff has been substantially increased during the last three years and as already announced in connection with the Factories Bill, the strength of the inspectorate is to be reviewed in the light of the provisions of the Bill.
