HC Deb 05 July 1978 vol 953 c191W

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will state in the Official Report when the appointment of each member of the Health and Safety Commission will be due for renewal or termination; and what proposals he has for changing the composition of the Commission in each case.

Mr.John Grant

The chairman and all the members of the Commission, except Mr. E. M. Jukes, were appointed last year to serve until 30th September 1980. Mr. Jukes was appointed to serve for one year only to 30th September 1978 and I will shortly be consulting the Confederation of British Industry about his replacement. I have no plans to change the statutory composition of the Commission as laid down by section 10(2) and (3) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
