§ 7. Mr. B. SMITH
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the injury to health suffered by men using pneumatic tools; and whether he will cause an inquiry to be held into the matter?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Arthur Henderson)
I received recently a communication on this subject from the Transport and General Workers' Union, hut no definite evidence of injury has so far been furnished. I will have the matter looked into, but I shall be glad if the hon. Member can supply me with particulars of actual instances of workmen who have suffered injury to health from this cause with a view to facility[...] inquiry.
