HC Deb 24 July 1894 vol 27 c805
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?


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.
