HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 c104W
Mr. Awbery

asked the Minister of Labour what steps are being taken to revise the factory regulations to bring them up to date to meet the rapid changes now taking place in manufacturing establishments and the growing dangers of radioactivity, particularly in our atom-explosive factories.

Mr. Carr

A preliminary draft of regulations dealing with the use of sealed sources of radioactive substances in industry was published in July. Comments on this draft are now being considered. Work has started on the preparation of regulations dealing generally with open sources.
