HC Deb 05 July 1934 vol 291 cc2085-6W

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the working conditions obtaining at the factory of Universal Furniture Products at Wembley, in which employés are working in overcrowded and badly-ventilated conditions; that regulations governing the use of masks as protection against fumes are being ignored and other necessary working conditions and facili- ties are either partly or wholly ignored; and whether he will institute inquiries with a view to having these conditions remedied?


I have received a report showing that these works have been repeatedly and carefully inspected and the allegations in the question are not borne out. I may add that masks are not required, and I am advised that such a requirement would not be desirable.
