HC Deb 02 December 1937 vol 329 cc2239-40
55. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Home Secretary the number of meetings which have been held by the committee appointed to investigate the possibilities of the provision of a plan for granting compensation to cardroom workers in the cotton industry who are disabled by respiratory illness; what evidence has been taken; and when the report of this committee may be expected?

Mr. Lloyd

I understand that the committee have met on six occasions and have heard medical evidence and representatives of employers and workpeople, and that they are now awaiting the results of a statistical review for which purpose further information was to be obtained from operatives. I regret that I cannot say when their report may be expected.

Forward to
