§ Mr. Meacher
asked the Paymaster General if he will publish the Secretary of State for Employment's Letter to the General, Municipal, Boilermakers and Allied Trades Union dated 27 November 1985 regarding Crown immunity and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974; if he will identify the cases referred to; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Trippier
The General, Municipal and Boilermakers Allied Trade Union wrote on this matter to the Secretary of State for Employment's predecessor. I have arranged for a copy of my right hon. and noble Friend's reply to the GMBATU to be placed in the House of Commons library. The hon. Member should ask the GMBATU for any further information on its report which he requires.
