To ask the Secretary of State for Employment (1) when the Health and Safety Executive plan of work 1990–91 was due to be published; and whether there are any implications for resourcing issues;(2) what representations he has received from

My right hon. and learned Friend met the chairman of the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) and a number of commissioners on 31 May to discuss their plan of work for 1990–91 and beyond. He has approved the plan and it will be published shortly. I also refer to my answer on 26 June to the hon. Member for Houghton and Washington (Mr. Boyes).In approving the plan of work the Secretary of State has discussed with HSC the resources required to put it into effect. He has agreed with the Commission that he will find the necessary resources from within his Department's provision for 1990–91.
