HC Deb 11 March 1941 vol 369 cc1159-60W
Dr. Morgan

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a number of persons employed in war factories have been obliged to cease employment owing to muscular strains and neuritis due to constant application to unaccustomed work; that they cannot obtain any compensation or special remedial treatment for such injuries, as in many industrial centres adequate and appropriate treatment facilities are non-existent; and what steps he is taking to remedy this state of affairs?

Mr. Bevin

In the great majority of cases workers adjust themselves to unaccustomed work after a short period and are not obliged to cease employment during the period of adjustment. If my hon. Friend will give me particulars of any cases such as those referred to in the Question I shall be glad to consider them in consultation with those of my colleagues who are also concerned.
