Mr. Corbett: To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will describe the technical and expert assistance which the United Kingdom has provided to the International Labour Organisation in each of the last 10 years.     [30227]

Miss Widdecombe: The areas where assistance is provided include health and safety and statistics. The information requested is not, however, held centrally by the Department and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Organophosphorus Products

Mr. Tyler: To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what proportion of (a) sheep farms and (b) market gardens which may be expected to use organophosphorus products are visited by inspectors each year to check on protective measures when handling these products.     [29734]


Column 390

Mr. Oppenheim [holding answer 20 June 1995]: It is impossible to predict in advance the sheep farms or market gardens that use organophosphorus products. However, in the course of routine visits to these premises, health and safety inspectors inquire about compliance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, which apply to the use of organophosphorus products, including sheep dips.

Visits are, of course, supplemented by published guidance and by advice through other means.
