Pedrocut commented Jan 01, 2012:

The full report can be accessed on the National Archives Newspaper site, for a charge. It is much more extensive than the paraphrasing above, and worth a read.

My first impressions are that the Birmingham Daily Post are carrying the banner for the underprivelidged classes here, and certainly they are using what power they have to campaign against the employment of children.

Just how low have the modern tabloid press sunk to?
