HC Deb 09 July 1906 vol 160 c519
MR. HUDSON (Newcastle-on-Tyne)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if any inquiry has been held into the cause of the explosion of the Great Northern Railway Company's (Ireland) locomotive engine boiler at Armagh, on May 16th last, when the engine-driver and fireman wore severely scalded; and whether he can say what was the cause of the firebox end of the boiler exploding.


The accident in question was reported to the Board of Trade. No formal inquiry has been held into it, but the Board have received from the railway company full particulars of the nature and causes of the accident. These particulars I shall be prepared to show to the hon. Member.
