HC Deb 17 June 1880 vol 253 c200

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he can state when the Report of the Commission of Inquiry into the Tay Bridge disaster will be issued?


Sir, as the hon. Member (Mr. Henderson) is aware, the evidence in the case of the inquiry into the Tay Bridge disaster is very voluminous, and raises many very important and complicated questions. I am informed that the preparation of the Report is far advanced; and although I cannot state the precise date when it will be issued, I hope it will be ready before many days.
