HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1503W
Dr. Barnett Stross

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the risk of lead poisoning in the potteries has been substantially eliminated, but that the risk from silicosis is still present; and whether he will give favourable consideration to the building of new factories and the rebuilding and improvement of as many such existing factories as merit a continued existence.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir, and I am anxious to facilitate the rebuilding of potteries so far as the available building resources permit, not only to prevent industrial disease, but also to provide modern and efficient working conditions.
