§ 51. Mr. Leslie Huckfield
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of the time of the Factory Inspectorate is taken up with legal proceedings in court; and how much time is actually spent in factories.
§ Mr. Dudley Smith
Precise information is not available. However, the proportion of time given to prosecution is known to be very small. Inspectors in the field spend the bulk of their time on inspection, including travelling and consequential office work.
