§ 10. Mr. Day
asked the Minister of Labour the number of establishments on Trade Board lists as at the last convenient date; the number of inspections that were made during the 12 months ended at that date and the number of inspections that were made during the same period; what percentage of establishments were inspected; and what steps he proposes to take to protect the workers in the catering trade?
§ Mr. E. Brown
During the 12 months ended 30th September last the number of establishments in Trade Board Trades was approximately 85,000. There were 19,000 inspections, the proportion of establishments inspected being slightly over one-fifth of the total. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the statement which I made in the course of debate on 6th July last.
