HC Deb 13 January 1913 vol 46 c1702W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Report of the Board's official who attended the International Congress on Industial Hygiene and the Prevention of Accidents to Workpeople, held in Milan in May last, has yet been considered; and whether it is in contemplation to circulate the Report to Members of this House?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I received a short report of the proceedings at this conference from the inspector who attended it on behalf of the Home Office, but I think it is hardly of sufficient general interest to justify its publication as a special report. The proceedings at the conference consisted largely of the reading of papers on a variety of subjects, which will, no doubt, be published in the transactions of the conference, and some account of the conference will appear in the Annual Report of the Chief Inspector of Factories for 1912.
