HC Deb 01 August 1946 vol 426 c1205
65. Mr. Frederick Lee

asked the Minister of Health whether he is now able to report the findings of the committee which was set up to ensure the adequate cleansing of all fillings used in the manufacture of bedding, upholstery, toys, and other domestic articles; and whether it is his intention to introduce legislation to improve the present standards.

Mr. Bevan

The Committee's Report was presented to both Houses on 23rd July and has been published as Command Paper No. 6S66. The Report is at present under consideration.

Mr. Lee

Is my right hon. Friend aware that since putting down this Question, I have seen the Report, and I would like to congratulate the Committee on a very fine Report? As the Report is a condemnation of the present position, will my right hon. Friend consider the introduction of legislation at a very early date?

Mr. Bevan

I have not yet had an opportunity of digesting the Report, which I agree is an admirable and detailed piece of work. When I have made up my mind what to do, I shall certainly inform the House.
