HC Deb 18 March 1936 vol 310 cc453-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether any inquiry is proceeding in this country at the moment into the question of temperature and humidity conditions in schools, hospitals, etc.; and, if not, whether he will take steps to institute such inquiries?


I understand that inquiries relating to questions of warmth and comfort in buildings are being carried out by an Inter-departmental Committee of the Medical Research Council and the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, and that a further report will shortly be issued by the Council. In these circumstances I do not at present think it necessary to institute further inquiries with special reference to schools or hospitals.
