§ 94. Mr. Archer
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will bring into effect the Employment of Children Act 1973.
§ Mrs. Currie
The Government have no plans to implement the Employment of Children Act 1973. All local authorities (except Isles of Scilly) have byelaws which regulate the hours and conditions of children's employment. The majority of byelaws follow departmental guidance of 1976 which is based on the proposed content of regulations under the 1973 Act.
