HC Deb 16 October 1996 vol 282 c1069W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what sums from public funds were allocated for promoting European week for Health and Safety., and if he will make a statement. [40850]

Sir Paul Beresford

The European Week for Safety and Health was aimed to encourage organisations themselves to raise awareness about hazards in the workplace and to be more effective in managing health and safety. In the UK we especially encouraged participation in the "Good Health is Good Business" campaign. I am extremely pleased that over 10,000 UK organisations registered an interest in participating in the European week. The Health and Safety Executive supported the week at a cost of £50,000.
