HC Deb 19 November 1954 vol 533 c715

Lords Amendment: In page 58, line 10, after "a" insert "young."

11.30 a.m.

Mr. Joynson-Hicks

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

The Clause deals with medical examinations. As a result of consideration in another place and of other discussions on this matter we have at last achieved what is agreeable and satisfactory to all concerned. We have also brought the provisions into line with the International Labour Organisation's recommendations, so that compulsory medical examinations in future shall, subject to any changes that may be made by Regulations under the agreed procedure, apply only to young persons under the age of 18.

Question put, and agreed to.
