Parliamentary Gossip.


Wellington, August 2,

The proceedings at this- • morning's meeting*of Mr Hutchison's Committee are said to have been particularly lively. The principal business was the consideration of the form the motion to be moved by the Chairman m House should take. A proposal was niade that it should be one calling upon the Bank authorities to produce their books unreservedly. To this an amendment was moved from the Governmeut side that the books relating to Ministers' private accounts should not be called for until after the charges of malversation of public accounts had been dealt with. After a lively discussion the amendment was , negatived, and the original resolution was agreed to. The Minister for Education, it is stated, demanded that he should be heard on the question, but the Chairman ruled that he could nofc, as the Committee were deliberating, and Mr Hislop then, left the room m a violent temper, banging the door behind him.

Material amendments m the provisions of the Factories and Shops Bill will be proposed by the Labor Bills Committee. At to-day's sitting of the Committee, it was decided to propose that no female under the age of eighteen, and no boy under fifteen, be allowed to work m a printing office at type setting. The clauses relating to shop hours were reached, and .were so generally disapproved by the Committee that it was decided to have them drafted anew and entirely re-modeled.
