asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he is satisfied with the transfer of the Alkali Inspectorate to the Manpower Commission.

Yes. On 1st January 1975 the Alkali and Clean Air Inspectorate, together with other inspectorates concerned with health and safety at work, was transferred to the new Health and Safety Executive which is the operating arm of the Health and Safety Commission. These arrangements will combine in one organisation responsibility for the control of emissions to the atmosphere, both inside and outside industrial plants, of dangerous or offensive substances. I am satisfied that the arrangements are necessary to enable the commission to discharge its responsibilities effectively.
