HC Deb 05 November 1956 vol 558 c1928
14. Mr. J. E. B. Hill

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food when he expects to bring forward draft safety regulations under the Agriculture (Safety, Health and Welfare) Act, 1956.

Mr. Amory

I hope to make the first of these regulations, dealing with first aid, in the near future. Other regulations will be made progressively after the necessary consultations have taken place.

Mr. Hill

When my right hon. Friend is preparing the regulations, particularly the safety regulations, will he at the same time prepare illustrative pamphlets and posters, and, if possible, a film on farm safety so that the regulations, when they come into force, may have with them objective illustrations to enable the ordinary farm worker and farmer to understand how to implement them?

Mr. Amory

I will consider the suggestions of my hon. Friend, both of which seem to me to be good ones.

Forward to
