asked the Home Secretary whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce this Session a Bill to amend the Factory Acts?
It is not proposed to introduce a Bill to amend the Factory Acts this Session.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware this reform is greatly overdue; and that it was promised last Session and the Session before that?
Yes, Sir, I am aware that it is overdue, but I am afraid it is not possible to introduce it this Session.
