"The scope of the Report was limited to the examination of the regulation of child labour in relation to the Employment of Children Act (1903), in occupations which were not covered by the Factory and Mines Acts, and its aim was to suggest practical ways of dealing with the problem, rather than studying its effects.

Almost the same story is applicable to the spinning process."http://www.infed.org/youthwork/b-yw.htm
