Royal Commission on Labour in India: Report(1929)||
At the head of the Labour Statistics Bureau, Burma has an officer responsible for labour matters in addition to statistics; but here also continuity of tenure has not been secured. Elsewhere there is not even the nucleus of a labour department. The Chief Inspector of Factories provides expert advice within his own sphere and may be called upon for advice on matters outside that sphere. A large number of non-specialist officers deal with workmen's compensation and there is no definite responsibility on any officer for trade disputes. The Director of Industries is usually Registrar of Trade Unions and has to act as a general adviser on labour matters. He is also normally responsible to Government for the administration of the Factories Act. He has in some provinces more permanence of tenure than a secretariat officer, but in others he has been changed fairly frequently.
