§ Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the Home Secretary whether his Department has any statistics of the growing incidence of Buerger's disease in hands and arms of coalminers using automatic tools; and whether he has considered scheduling this disease?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
No, Sir. I am advised that there is no evidence that this disease is associated with the use of pneumatic tools. If my hon. Friend has any definite cases, I should be glad if he would let me have particulars when I will consult with my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of Fuel and Power.
