asked the Home Secretary if he will introduce a Bill to amend the Factory and Workshops Act so as to legalise the maximum working week for women and young persons in textile factories at 48 hours per week; and, if not, will he say why?

No circumstances showing the need of an immediate amendment of the Act in the direction indicated in the question have been brought to my notice, and I do not see my way to introduce any such legislation this Session.
