§ Sir A. WILSON
asked the Minister of Health what is the total number of approved societies; how many of them give dental treatment as an additional benefit; how many assist both men and women; how many assist men only; and what is the maximum, minimum, and2302W
shipowners to this matter within the last two years?
§ Dr. BURGIN
I have no reason to think that the present inspection of such apparatus is not sufficient. The attention of shipowners has not recently been specially drawn to this matter by the Board of Trade, but shipowners and the other interests concerned were asked to take into consideration the whole question of precaution against fires in passenger ships in May, 1932, and I am aware that they have given special attention to electric wiring in the investigation.
