Excerpt from Child Labour in the United Kingdom: A Study of the Development and Administration of the Law Relating to the Employment of Children
The Sub-committee held six meetings, at which various points connected with the scope and method of the inquiry, together with the practical proposals to be recommended for extending and enforcing the regulation of child labour, were discussed. The actual drafting of the Report was entrusted to Mr. F. Keeling, who acted as chairman of the Committee but the draft has been considered by all the members of the Committee and revised in certain details in the light of their criticisms. The local reports were drawn up by members of the Committee, with the assistance, in some cases, of the members or officials of local authorities. Much of the material comprised in the Report is original, in the sense that it has been collected by means of personal interviews or communications with the officials and members of local authorities, and is not to be found in printed documents of any kind. Official and other documents have also been freely used, a large proportion of them having been specially collected for the purposes of the inquiry. In' addition to acquiring a complete collection of all bye-laws made by local authorities throughout the United Kingdom for regulating the employment of children, the Committee circulated schedules to all the local authorities in England and Wales which are responsible for the administration of the Employment of Children Act, whether they had made bye-laws or not. The information secured through these schedules formed the basis of much of the material contained in Part IV. Of the Report.
