§ 40. Dr. Stross
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has now considered the recommendations of the Industrial Health Survey in Halifax; and what action he proposes to take in order that increased industrial medical and nursing services will be made available.
§ Mr. Wood
I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer given to the hon. Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, East 956 (Mr. Blenkinsop) on 2nd April. An approach is now being made to occupiers of Halifax factories employing 250 or more workpeople with a view to interesting them in the advtantages of providing or extending medical and nursing services.
§ Mr. Maurice Macmillan
In view of the fact that the problems facing smaller factories are very largely physical, may I ask my hon. Friend not to forget to give any assistance that might be possible for them, especially financial assistance?
