§ Mr. Carter-Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity in view of public concern about the treatment of out-workers, if she will take steps to compel local authorities to keep a list of all such workers; if she will consider introducing legislation imposing fines on people who do not comply with safety regulations and providing good condition of employment for out-workers; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
There are arrangements under which local authorities are sent lists of out-workers in certain trades to enable them to stop work in any place which is injurious or dangerous to health. These arrangements, like the other provisions of the Factories Act, are currently under review.
