§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works when the Winter Building Advisory Committee last met; and when it is proposing to meet again.
§ Mr. Loughlin
At its last meeting in October, 1966, the committee agreed a programme of work including contract specifications, on-site lighting, protective enclosures and protective clothing. A survey carried out in 1969 showed that substantial improvements are being achieved. Sales of approved equipment are increasing and the response to publicity—conferences, lectures, films, exhibitions and articles in the national and technical Press—is favourable. A progress report is in preparation and will be circulated to committee members. A further meeting of the committee will be held when necessary.
