HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c637W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in the legislation he proposes to introduce setting up medical boards for the purposes of the diagnosis and treatment of silicosis, for research purpose and training, the central bureau is to be in Sheffield; and when it is proposed to introduce such legislation?


Yes, Sir; it is contemplated that the centre of the new organisation, which would be set up for the purposes of the medical examinations required under the Act, should be at Sheffield. I regret I am not in a position to say when the proposed Bill will be introduced, but my hon. Friend may be assured that everything possible will be done to expedite the matter.
