HC Deb 30 May 1916 vol 82 c2569

The following question stood on the Paper in the name of Sir WILLIAM BYLES:

41. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether certifying factory inspectors have been relieved of their statutory obligation to investigate factory accidents and to visit the injured person; if so, will he state by whose authority an Act of Parliament is superseded; whether he is aware that the arrangement deprives certifying surgeons of a portion of their income; and that the changed labour conditions due to the War make it not less but more important to preserve every safeguard against factory accidents, which generally arise from inexperience or fatigue.


This question has got on the Paper by mistake. I do not ask it.
