HC Deb 08 December 1927 vol 211 cc1545-6
12. Mr. LAMB

asked the Home Secretary if he will publish a statement giving the statutory requirements, including those relating to workmen's compensation, so far as they are administered by his Department, governing the production and manufacture of milk in this country in parallel columns with the corresponding statutory obligations existing in all countries from which condensed skimmed milk is imported into Great Britain, showing in each case the measures taken to enforce such statutory requirements?


The preparation of a statement on the lines indicated would demand much time and labour, and I regret that I should not feel justified in undertaking the task, I think my hon. Friend would find most of the information he wants given in a convenient form in the Reports published by the International Labour Office in 1925 on "Compensation for Industrial Accidents" and "Compensation for Occupational Diseases," and in 1923 on "Factory Inspection." The last-mentioned Report contains a survey of factory legislation in the various countries, and the two Reports on workmen's compensation include detailed comparative statements.
