02/04/1892 – Airdrie and Coatbridge Advertiser – Factory Act prosecution. At Airdrie on Thursday, before Sheriff Mair, the new inspector of factories brought a charge against Mr James Wilson, brick manufacturer, Coatbridge, of having allowed a girl under age to be employed in his brickwork. Mr Wilson stated that he had left matters entirely to his foreman who had taken on the girl after he had given strict injunctions to the contrary. This was the first time in his 23 years’ experience that such a thing had happened, and he thought that, as he was giving up the work at anyrate, it looked as if they wanted a prosecution before he did so. (Laughter.) In the circumstances, a fine of £1 was imposed.
