33. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Home Secretary how many cases of poisoning by carbon bisulphide, aniline poisoning, and chronic benzene poisoning have been reported since the 1st February, 1925; and what special steps are being taken by his Department to diminish the risk of chemical poisoning?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
Two cases of carbon bisulphide and 30 cases of anilin poisoning have been reported, but no case of chronic benzene poisoning. Special steps are taken to diminish the risk by following up each case, and generally by the enforcement of the special precautions required by the Chemical Works Regulations of 1922. The whole subject is receiving special attention from the medical inspectors.
