§ Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has now considered the offer of the certifying surgeons' organisation to assist in any advisory capacity in connection with factory welfare work; and what conclusion has been reached?
§ Mr. Bevin
I am not aware of any recent offer of this kind, and the factory inspectorate have in fact continued to assume that the Association of Certifying Surgeons is available and willing at any time to assist the Department on medical aspects of factory welfare and have consulted its secretary on various occasions on particular points. If there is any special point which the association wish to raise, perhaps my hon. Friend would let me know.
