§ 68. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the facts given in the recently-published Report of His Majesty's Chief Inspector of Factories as to the deficiencies in the existing sanitary accommodation both in workplaces and in homes under certain local authorities; and, in view of the injury to public health, what steps he proposes to take to arrive at a satisfactory and uniform standard?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The answer to the first part of the Noble Lord's question is in the affirmative. The matter obviously concerns both the Home Office and the Ministry of Health, and I am in communication with my right hon. Friend as to joint action.
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
May I ask whether the Ministry of Health have any power to act in cases of default, and whether they have ever done so?
