DescriptionAt the request of HM Government, a committee is investigating certain problems connected with an opthalmic disease known as Glass Workers' Cataract. A small sub-committee has been appointed to visit certain Glass Works, and inspect the various processes of manufacture, but nothing this committee does will interfere with the men at work.
