§ 33. Captain CUNNINGHAM - REID
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that the workmen in the Royal Mint working upon molten metal do not normally use the dark glasses issued to them for the protection of their eyesight, upon the grounds that the inner side of these glasses rapidly becomes coated with a film of moisture which interferes with vision; and whether he will see if it is possible to issue an improved type of dark glass not subject to this defect?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
The types of dark glasses have been carefully selected after considerable investigation and with expert advice on the question of eliminating moisture. I am advised that they give as good results as can be obtained. No complaint as to the serviceable nature of the glasses has been received from the staff concerned.
