§ Mr. R. Gibson
asked the Home Secretary what arrangements his Department has for inspectors under the Factory Act visiting ships that have premises to which the Factories Act applies; what sort of premises were, and are, visited; and is he satisfied with the number and sufficiency of such visits?
§ Mr. Lloyd
My right hon. Friend understands that the hon. Member has in mind parts of ships such as laundries, or places where meat is minced, in which there may be machinery of types used in factories. It has not been the practice of the Department to regard such places as subject to the Factory Acts.
