HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 cc521-2W
Mr. Caborn

asked the Secretary of State for Employment, in each successive week since the National Carriers' warehouse fire in Sheffield, (a) how many man hours health and safety inspectors have spent investigating the incidents in Sheffield, (b) how many hours of paid overtime have been worked by inspectors involved in the Health and Safety Executive's investigation of the incident and (c) what jobs have been done during the paid overtime worked by the inspectors.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

A breakdown of man hours and overtime spent by health and safety inspectors investigating the incident in Sheffield is not available without disproportionate cost. The jobs done during the overtime worked by inspectors have been exclusively concerned with interviewing firemen and taking statements
