HC Deb 07 November 1960 vol 629 cc12-3W
Mr. Kelley

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance what plans he has for an inquiry to be made into the incidence rates of certain chest disabilities, and other diseases, among people employed in some specified occupations; when the inquiry will start; what period it will cover; when the report is likely to be available; whether it will be published; and what are the chest complaints and occupations to be covered by the inquiry.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Although I have in mind an inquiry of this kind, I am not in a position to make an announcement, as consultations about arrangements, including many of the points mentioned in the Question, are taking place with some of those concerned.
