PREFACE TO THE SIXTH EDITION.
FURTHER Edition of this Work, which was A
originally compiled by the late ALEXANDER REDGRAVE, Esq., C.B., Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Factories, has been necessitated by the changes in the law relating to Factories and Workshops effected by the Factory and Workshop Act, 1895, and several other enactments which have come into operation since the publication of the last Edition. In view of the somewhat intricate nature of these changes, and of the fact that the law relating to the subject is comprised in five Acts, three of which are of a considerable length, it has been considered advisable to abandon the method adopted in the last Edition of interpolating the provisions of the later Acts among the matter of the principal Act to which they refer, and to print each Act separately and in its entirety with full references, wherever necessary, to the kindred provisions of the other Acts. In other respects the new Edition of the book has been compiled upon the lines laid down by its original author, and the leading characteristics of the work have been preserved. Considerable additions and alterations have, of necessity, been made to the notes, &c., and matter that is now obsolete has been eliminated,
