§ MR. J. ROWLANDS (Finsbury, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will grant a Return of the accidents, fatal or otherwise, which occurred during the construction of the Tower Bridge, together with the cause of the accidents and names of the injured?
§ MR. BRYCE
The Board of Trade have not the materials to enable them to grant such a Return. Under the Notice of Accidents Act which has recently become law they will, in future, be possessed of such materials, but the Act is not retrospective. I have, however, asked the Corporation of the City of London to furnish the Board with the information required, and a copy of their reply shall be laid on the Table of the House.
