§ 4. Mr. BRIANT
asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the dangers to asbestos workers from asbestos dust; if he will take steps to have a periodical examination of the workers; and if inquiry is being made as to the dangers attending this industry?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
Two cases of suspected danger to health have been recently reported to the Factory Department and the matter is being carefully investigated by the Medical Inspectors. Should their inquiries show that any special precautions are required, the necessary steps for the purpose will be taken.
