asked the Secretary of State for Employment if the Health and Safety Executive has received copies of the reports of Dr. Black and Dr. Ward provided for Coalite and Chemical Products in their inquiries into the effects of 2,4,5-T.

[pursuant to his reply, 24 March 1980, c. 383]: The Health & Safety Executive has now received copies of the reports referred to. These reports, which are not concerned with the effects of 2,4,5-T but are related to the medical condition of workers exposed to large quantities of dioxin following the explosion at Coalite's plant at Bolsover in 1968, are being assessed by the Executive.
