§ SIR C. DILKE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether there can be circulated to Members before Friday the Report of Dr. Oliver and Dr. Thorpe on Lead Poisoning in the Potteries, and whether he can state if the Report, recommends the use of fritted lead?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT
I have received an interim Report from Dr. Oliver and Dr. Thorpe, but it is incomplete, and experiments are still being made; and I do not think it would be desirable, by publishing it, to anticipate their final and fuller Report which will embody and supersede it. The Report does contain a recommendation to the effect stated in the Question.
§ MR. WOODALL (Hanley)
May I ask the right honourable Gentleman if he is able to report the result of the inquiries he promised to address on this subject to Continental Governments?
