HC Deb 25 June 1976 vol 913 cc457-8W
Mr. Montgomery

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when area health authorities can expect to receive the promised guidelines on the Health and Safety at Work, etc., Act.

Dr. Owen

Authorities received guidance on the content of the Act, together with advice on the initial action that should be taken, in April 1975. The need for further guidance on different aspects of the implementation of this Act in the health services is being considered. That concerning safety representatives and committees must, of course, await the issue of definitive regulations by the Health and Safety Commission.
