HC Deb 05 March 1901 vol 90 c570
MR. COGHILL (Stoke-upon-Trent)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the death of Richard Edwards, a house painter, of 33, Pinnox Street, Tunstall, caused, as a coroner's jury found, by lead poisoning: and whether he proposes to introduce any legislation for the protection of house painters from lead poisoning.


I have inquired into the case and find that it does not come within any Acts which I have to administer; and I do not see my way to proposing any such legislation as is suggested.
