§ Mr. Proctor
asked the Secretary of State for Employment for what reasons the Health and Safety Executive library and information service has reduced public access time.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
The hours of public telephone access have been reduced by one hour daily — now 10.00 am to 3.00 pm—so that library staff can cope more efficiently with a growing number of written as well as telephoned enquiries. The impact of this move is being closely monitored by the Health and Safety Executive.
