HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 c1W
4. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will make a statement on the discussions he has recently held with his Industrial Health Advisory Committee on occupational hygiene.

Mr. Godber

I had a full discussion of occupational hygiene services with my Industrial Health Advisory Committee on 12th May. The first requirement is to establish the extent and nature of the need for such services. It was decided that an advisory panel of the Committee should be set up to consider how best to carry out a further survey of needs in this field, taking into account the points which had been raised in discussion. I shall give further consideration to policy on this subject in conjunction with the Industrial Health Advisory Committee when the results of this further survey are available.
