HC Deb 28 June 1979 vol 969 cc284-5W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Prime Minister, what consideration she has given to the recommendations of the report of the Pearson Commission; what action the Government will be taking; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

My colleagues will be examining those aspects of this wide ranging and important report for which they are responsible. In particular, consideration is being given to the implications of the Pearson Commission's recommendations for the industrial injuries scheme. The Government are also studying the recommendations for the introduction of strict liability for defective products, having particular regard to the proposals by the EEC Commission.
