HC Deb 05 June 1924 vol 174 c1426
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.
