HC Deb 08 September 1942 vol 383 c12
15. Mr. J. Griffiths

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power, what progress has been made in the consideration of the Report of the Medical Research Council on the problem of silicosis; and when it is proposed to give legislative effect to the committee's recommendations?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Peake)

I have been asked to reply. Proposals for action in the direction recommended by the Committee have been communicated to the two sides of the industry and discussions are in progress. I hope that it may be possible to reach agreement on these proposals at an early date as a basis for legislation.
