HC Deb 16 July 1970 vol 803 c1725
Q9. Mr. Sillars

asked the Prime Minister if he will place a copy of his speech at Cromer, North Norfolk, on 4th July on Great Britain's future, in the Library of the House.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Sillars

Will the Prime Minister accept that, albeit that it was a fairly simple speech to fairly simple people attending a Tory Party garden fete, there was one glaring omission in the speech in that it made no reference whatever to industrial safety? Does the Prime Minister recall that in his speech he talked about making a nation worth living in, and does he recognise that no nation can be worth living in when the industrial worker does not get the protection that he urgently needs at this time?

The Prime Minister

I do not know quite what effect the hon. Member's remarks have in South Ayrshire. They will not gain him great popularity in North Norfolk. Industrial safety is the concern of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity, who has heard the hon. Member's remarks.
