§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects to issue regulations under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act to set health and safety standards in schools.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I am informed by the Chairman of the Health and Safety Commission that the Health and Safety Executive is conducting a pilot study of working conditions in school and will report its findings to the Health and Safety Commission this year. Whether regulations are required will depend on the findings of the pilot study.
