§ Mr. Dudley Smith
asked the Minister of Labour what further surveys of industrial health problems he proposes to undertake.
§ Mr. Godber
On the advice of my Industrial Health Advisory Committee, and with the full co-operation and support of the Joint Standing Committees on Health, Safety and Welfare in Foundries, Medical Inspectors of Factories will be carrying out a survey amongst foundrymen to determine whether the incidence of certain respiratory diseases is affected by occupational factors. This survey will cover some 60 foundries and the inquiries will be carried out this autumn and again next spring. Numerous investigations into industrial health questions are, of course, undertaken in the course of normal duties.
