HC Deb 23 July 1963 vol 681 cc151-2W
55. Mrs. Hart

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science what steps he is taking to ensure that the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research post-graduate students work in conditions of safety.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

It is the responsibility of the universities and technical colleges to ensure that their students work in conditions of safety, whether they hold Department of Scientific and In- dustrial Research awards or not; but, to assist in reducing accidents, D.S.I.R. is distributing this autumn, and subsequently annually, its publication "Safety Measures in Chemical Laboratories" to university and technical college chemistry departments and to all new D.S.I.R. award holders in these departments.
