§ 59. Mr. GOLDSTONE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the fact that the five assistant clerks who have been certified as suffering from phthisis or other tuberculous disease passed two strict medical examinations before their appointment, he will inquire into the conditions under which these men work in the Statistical Office of the Customs and Excise Department where they are employed?
§ Mr. MASTERMAN
I am informed by the Board of Customs and Excise that, in the opinion of their medical officer, the conditions under which the men in the Statistical Office work are satisfactory, and that the illness from which the five men in question suffered cannot be attributed to their conditions of work.
