§ 99. Mr. Fairhurst
asked the Minister of Labour how many firms in the Lancashire cotton textile industry have not yet installed food canteens, and reasonable washing and toilet facilities.
§ Mr. Isaacs
The progress in this matter cannot be indicated by statistics. Improvements have been or are being carried out on a widespread scale but they are bound to be successive and gradual because the material, equipment and labour cannot all be made available at once.
