To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what recent representations he has received regarding the Health and Safety Executive manpower cuts; and if he will make a statement.

I have received a number of representations on the subject of resources for the Health and Safety Commission and Executive. For 1988–89 it is planned that their total expenditure will increase by £6·7 million compared to the previous White Paper provision for that year. This will allow the number of inspectors to be increased by 60 above present levels.
