HC Deb 22 March 1929 vol 226 cc1980-1W

asked the Minister of Health in how many instances inspectors of his department visited hop picking areas during 1928; whether they found the conditions set out in the revised model bylaws issued by his department early in 1926 had been carried out; and whether all the district councils in the hop-picking areas have adopted these by-laws?


Eleven rural districts were visited by my officers during 1928. Unsatisfactory conditions were observed in some instances, and the attention of the local authorities concerned was drawn to those instances. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
