HC Deb 22 April 1987 vol 114 c554W
Mr. Terry Davis

asked the Paymaster General what steps are being taken by the Government to implement recommendation 64 of the Finniston report entitled "Engineering Our Future".

Mr. Trippier

In preparing regulations under the Health and Safety at Work, etc. Act 1974, it is for the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) in each case to consider whether it would be appropriate to adopt the first part of this recommendation, or to legislate for safe engineering practice in some other way. When consulting on proposals for regulations which might include such requirements, it is the HSC's practice to include the Engineering Council among those consulted.
