HC Deb 10 July 1969 vol 786 c279W
27. Mr. Milne

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity if she will seek powers to examine working and living conditions in British holiday camps prior to the issuing of work permits to overseas nationals.

Mr. Fernyhough

No. Permits are issued to foreign nationals to work in this country on the same terms and conditions as British workers. As I explained to my hon. Friend on 31st March, the Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Act, 1963, already covers certain parts of holiday camps. It is proposed to extend this coverage under the new safety, health and welfare legislation to all parts of the premises where persons are employed.—[Vol. 781, c. 3.]
