§ 77. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Home Secretary when the inquiry of his Department into silicosis is likely to conclude; and whether he proposes to publish a White Paper on the subject?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
If, as I suppose, the hon. Member is referring to the proposed medical inquiry to consider the arrangements for diagnosis of silicosis, that inquiry has only just been set on foot, and I cannot forecast now the time it is likely to take. If, however, he is referring to the Draft Scheme of Compensation which I am about to make for silicosis in various industries, that will be issued very shortly and laid before Parliament. No other publication is contemplated.
