§ 100. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will classify chronic bronchitis and emphysema among those who work in extractive industries such as coal mines, under the Industrial Diseases Act.
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
No. These conditions do not satisfy the provisions under which I am empowered to prescribe diseases under the Industrial Injuries Act, which I presume the hon. Member has in mind.
