asked the Minister of Supply whether he will consider appointing a medical officer to supervise and be in charge of all medical decisions regarding workers engaged in factories carrying out work for the Ministry of Supply throughout the country?

As indicated in the reply given on the 25th April to the hon. Member for Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander) appropriate local arrangements for medical services have been made at all Royal Ordnance Factories, and these include the appointment, as and when necessary, of departmental medical officers who work in close contact with the officers of the Home Office. As at present advised, my right hon. Friend is not satisfied that it is necessary to superimpose a central medical organisation at the Ministry of Supply, if that is what my hon. Friend has in mind.
