On the Administration of the Factory and Workshop
In this district there are 68 factories, 93 workshops,
and 111 workplaces, to which visits were paid during
the year as follows:—
Factories 49, workshops 49, workplaces 8.
There were 148 premises in which outwork was
carried oil. At 104 of these the work done was the
making of wearing apparel. There was no outwork in
Rats and Mice (Destruction) Act, 1919.
The same procedure operated during the year as
in the past in connection with rats and mice. Poisons
were supplied upon request and during Rat Week posters
were exhibited. A number of rat burrows was treated
with smoke and gas with fair results. In addition,
28 informal notices were served during the year and
21 were complied with.
