§ Mr. Tilley
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has now completed the process of consultations on the final report of the Advisory Committee on Asbestos; and when he expects to make regulations to implement the recommendations of the report.
§ Mr. Mayhew
All comments on the final report of the advisory committee on asbestos have been received and the Health and Safety Executive is preparing advice for the Health and Safety Commission and Ministers on reaction to the advisory committee's recommendations. When this advice has been studied, the Government will decide as soon as possible on their response to the report.
