§ 71. Colonel DAY
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the prevalence of epithelio-matous ulceration amongst tar workers; and whether it is intended to extend regulations providing wash and bath accommodation for the benefit of all those employed on or about tar distillery works?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
Yes, Sir. This disease among tar and pitch workers was made notifiable to the Factory Inspectors some years ago, and the figures of cases reported are given in 1833 the Chief Inspector's Annual Reports. Regulations are already in force requiring the provision of washing and bath accommodation at the distillery works.
