§ 59. Mr. SUNLIGHT
asked the Minister of Health if, arising out of the Bradford building collapse, he would instruct building and improvement departments of local authorities to supply and enforce printed notice boards, to be hung up in all new factories and warehouses, stating the load suspended floors must not exceed to carry to fulfil the terms of building bye-laws?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
There is at present no general statutory power enabling local authorities to do what is suggested by the hon. Member. I am, however, in consultation with the Home Office on the general question.
§ Mr. HARDIE
Is there any Department in any of the English towns which says what load these floors shall carry, and prevents their being overloaded?
