HC Deb 30 July 1930 vol 242 cc530-1W

asked the Secretary for Mines if there is a committee investigating anthracosis disease in mines; if so, who are the members and their qualifications; and whether a report of their findings is to be given?


I have been asked to answer this question on behalf of the Lord President. The subject is within the scope and under the close attention of the Committee on Industrial Pulmonary Disease recently set up by the Medical Research Council. I will send my hon. Friend a copy of the public announcement of the membership and functions of this committee. The results of their investigations will be published in due course.
