HC Deb 27 March 1973 vol 853 c284W
44. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what reply she has sent to representatives of the Wednesbury and District Trades Council following their letter about the right of factory inspectors to enter educational training workshops.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The Secretary of the trades council has been informed in a reply from my Department, a copy of which has been sent to the right hon. Member, that, while members of Her Majesty's Factory Inspectorate do not have a statutory right of entry to workshops in education establishments, local education authorities and colleges are encouraged to, and do, seek their advice on all aspects of safety.
