§ Mr. Andrew F. Bennett
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has any plans to seek to repeal section 119A of the Factories Act 1961 relating to notification to the careers service when an employer takes into employment a young person aged 18 years or under; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
I have asked the Health and Safety Commission for advice about the need in present-day conditions for section 119A of the Factories Act. I await its response.
