§ MR. W. F. LAWRENCE
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether he will ascertain at an early date, through Her Majesty's Representatives, what legislation, if any, akin to that of the Employers' Liability Act and its proposed Extensions now obtains in the countries of France, Germany, Belgium, Holland, and the United States of America, together with the periods during which such legislation has been in force?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. BRYCE)
The shortness of 1391 the Notice given by the hon. Member has not allowed of my making the necessary inquiries as to whether the information he requires is not already in the possession of other Departments of Her Majesty's Government. I have, however, opened communications with the Board of Trade and Home Office on the subject, and should we not already possess sufficient information, Her Majesty's Representative abroad will be directed to procure and supply it.
