Mr. Groves

asked the Home Secretary how many local education authorities in England and Wales have, by their by-laws, prohibited all employment of schoolchildren on school days under the age of 13; and how many have extended this prohibition to the school holiday periods?

Sir J. Anderson

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave today to a similar Question by the hon. Member for Colne Valley (Mr. Glenvil Hall).
