HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 cc445-6W
25. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he intends to complete the list of persons to be appointed to the Health and Safety Commission as laid down by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Harold Walker

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 specifies that the Commission shall consist of a chairman and not less than six or more than nine other members. The Chairman and eight members were appointed in the autumn of 1974. As regards the appointment of the ninth member, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. Member for Essex, South-East (Sir B. Braine) on 18th March.—[Vol. 907, c. 609.]
