§ 60. Dr. Stross
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the extra burden and added responsibilities placed 157W upon the Chief Inspector of Factories by recent legislation and regulations, he will increase the salary commensurately.
§ Mr. P. Thomas
I do not think that recent legislation and regulations have materially altered the nature and weight of the responsibilities of the Chief Inspector of Factories. The salary of the post, as of other posts in the Factory Inspectorate, is a matter for negotiation with the recognised staff association with which discussions are at present in progress.
