HC Deb 18 December 1947 vol 445 c1871
58. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the risks of injury to workers in the timber trade, who operate such machines as the spindle and overhead planer when a sudden cut is made in the electricity supply; and if he will consult with the trade unions concerned, and employers, to ensure that such exceptional risks are duly covered.

Mr. Isaacs

No, Sir, but if the hon. Member has any particular case in mind and will send me details, I will have inquiries made.
