HC Deb 02 August 1961 vol 645 c187W
82. Mr. D. Jones

asked the Minister of Labour in view of the increase in factory accidents during the last year and the consequent need for injured factory workers to secure adequate recompense, if he will amend the Factories Act, 1937, to enable injured workers to have the same statutory right to immediate inspection of machines involved on the site of the accident as they have been available to miners in similar circumstances since 1911.

Mr. Hare

There is no evidence that the absence of a provision of this sort has created difficulties for injured factory workers. If the hon. Member has some particular case in mind, I would be grateful if he would supply me with the particulars.
