§ 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.
