HC Deb 03 July 1940 vol 362 cc852-3W
Mr. Mort

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has received a recent report from his factory inspectors upon the atmospheric conditions prevailing in tin and steel works consequent upon the blackout regulations; whether that report was made as the result of a personal visit during the night and early morning hours; was it satisfactory; and, if no recent report has been made, will he call for one based on the aforementioned conditions?

Mr. Bevin

I have recently received a report from the factory inspector who is dealing specially with ventilation in steel works where anti-glare devices have had to be installed under the Lighting Restriction Order. The report which was based on visits made both by day and by night, shows that conditions are not yet satisfactory in some works, but that the necessary alterations in these cases are being made as rapidly as possible.
