§ Mr. Oakes
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he can now give a more precise date for when he expects to receive the report of the inquiry of the Robens Committee into safety and health at work than about the the middle of 1972.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
My Department's officers are closely in touch with the parties and are ready to give any assistance acceptable to them both. The union officials are endeavouring to secure a resumption of work so that negotiations can be resumed.
