HC Deb 22 March 1955 vol 538 c173W
94. Mr. Boardman

asked the Minister of Labour in which industrial processes involving dust, periodic medical examination of the operatives is required under his regulations.

Mr. Watkinson

Eleven Regulations have so far been made under the Factories Acts requiring the periodical medical examination of persons employed in processes which give rise to dust which is injurious to health. Periodical medical examination of persons employed in dusty processes in four industries which give rise to pneumoconiosis risks is required by Regulations made by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance.
