§ Mr. Jim Marshall
To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what representations he has received concerning the Personal Protection Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 and their effect on the Sikh community; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Oppenheim
We have received a number of representations on this issue, to which we have responded individually. The Personal Protective Equipment at Work448WI enclose a table showing by region, and for Great Britain, the number of warning letters issued to clients whose jobsearch activity was not considered to be adequate. This information is available for the period up to March 1995.
I hope this is helpful.
Regulations 1992 implement the use of personal protective equipment directive.
