HC Deb 07 July 1992 vol 211 c172W
12. Mr. Marlow

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if she will make a statement on the definition of health and safety as used by European institutions in assessing the procedures by which instruments of European legislation are processed.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

Article 118A of the treaty of Rome does not define health and safety, and we will continue to argue vigorously against its use where there are no proven health and safety risks.
