HC Deb 10 February 1887 vol 310 c1102
MR. WOOTTON ISAACSON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to the late lamentable accident at a Jewish Club in Spitalfields; and, if so, does he intend to introduce any measure whereby the exits and entrances of public buildings, other than those at present under the powers of inspection by the Government, shall be liable to such inspection?


, in reply, said, he had no information on the subject; but he understood from the newspapers that the Metropolitan Board of Works, to which the matter belonged, had now under consideration a proposal to amend the existing law in order to give them power to inspect such buildings as that of the Jewish Club.
