HC Deb 02 August 1911 vol 29 cc355-6

Ordered, That in the case of every Bill authorising the construction of works outside the county of London or any municipal borough the Committee to which the Bill is referred shall take this Order into their consideration, and if they are of opinion that such a number of workmen will probably be simultaneously employed upon the works as having regard to the nature and situation of the works to make such an inquiry desirable, they shall inquire into the question of the sufficiency of the accommodation and service available or proposed by the promoters to be provided under the Bill—

  1. (1) for the proper housing and sanitary requirements of persons employed in constructing the works authorized by the Bill;
  2. (2) for the treatment of cases of sickness or accident, including accommodation for dealing with infectious disease;
and if they think that further accommodation or service for those purposes ought to be provided they shall insert in the Bill such Clauses as in their opinion are necessary to secure the provision of satisfactory accommodation or service for those purposes by the local authority, company, or person authorised to execute the works.

Resolved, That this Order be a Standing Order of the House.—[Mr. Burns].
