HC Deb 10 May 1973 vol 856 cc158-9W
Mr. John Page

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether the report by the Industrial Training Service, "Safety Training Needs and Facilities in One Industry", has been considered by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dudley Smith

This report is being published today. Although it relates specifically to paper mills, it contains a great deal of material that is relevant to industry generally. The practical steps which are recommended are primarily matters for which industry is responsible, and I hope that companies will review their safety training policies in the light of these. In particular, I commend to them the section dealing with what is needed to equip managers to discharge their responsibilites for health and safety.
