asked the Minister of Labour how many factory inspectors, engaged in regular routine inspection, are attached to the 95 districts of the factory department; of that total how many hold university degrees in engineering, chemistry, and physics, respectively; and how many of such science graduates now in such district posts were appointed up to and including 1940.

The answer to the first part of the Question is 282, including 28 inspectors attached to the 13 divisional offices, and to the second, 39, 30 and 13, respectively, of whom 64 were appointed before the end of 1940.
