HC Deb 27 July 1944 vol 402 c907W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Labour whether, as no mention is made of the provision of an industrial medical service in the White Paper on a National Health Service, it is the intention of his Ministry to establish such a service; and whether any steps have been taken towards a plan for the organisation of health services in industry.

Mr. Bevin

It is not the case that no mention of an industrial medical service is made in the White Paper. The existing Industrial Medical Services are described on pages 60 and 61 and lines on which their development is contemplated are indicated on page 10. Health services in industry include far more than medical services, and I contemplate that they will continue and develop on the lines laid down in the Factory Acts and similar legislation.
