HC Deb 18 April 1928 vol 216 cc179-80
34. Mr. KELLY

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the result of his investigation into the effects of artificial silk manufacture on the health of those who are employed in factories engaged on such work

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

I stated the results of the investigation made by the Factory Department in the replies which I gave to the hon. Member on the 15th and 22nd March, and I have nothing to add to the particulars then given. A further inquiry is taking place.


I am glad to hear that further inquiries are to be made. May I ask whether there is any likelihood of these 'being completed and a report presented at an early date?


Mr. Jackson, the Deputy-Chief Inspector of Factories, has gone to Golborne and will open an inquiry at once.
