HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c747
14. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Labour why the annual report of His Majesty's Chief Inspector of Factories for 1945 was only presented to Parliament in December, 1946; and whether subsequent reports will be made available nearer the time to which they refer.

Mr. Isaacs

Owing to heavy pressure of work in the Factory Department, the last annual report was not completed until exceptionally late. I hope it will be found possible to submit future annual reports considerably earlier than during the war years.
