HC Deb 07 June 1988 vol 134 c482W
Mr. Hannam

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if, in view of the recent outbreak of Legionnaire's Disease at the British Broadcasting Corporation he will instruct the Health and Safety Executive to give wider publicity, including advertising, to the dangers of improperly managed water systems in large buildings.

Mr. Nicholls

I have been asked to reply.

The Health and Safety Executive has already published advice in guidance note No. 48 of its environmental hygiene series on the precautionary measures that can be taken to minimise the occurrence of legionnaire's disease. Copies of this guidance note are available from HMSO and I welcome the opportunity provided by my hon. Friend to publicise it further. Copies of the note will be placed in the Library.
