§ Mr. J. WARD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether his attention has been called to a recent accident on the dock works at Rosyth, when a workman named Cassey or Beckett was killed; and what action he proposes to take to inquire into the causes and circumstances of such accident?
§ The CIVIL LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. G. Lambert)
A report has been received of a fatal accident at Rosyth. I understand that an inquiry will be held by the Procurator-Fiscal in accordance with the provisions of Scotch law. Pending the result of this inquiry I am not in a position to make any statement.
§ Mr. JOHN WARD
asked whether the Local Government Board for Scotland intend to publish the report of their inspector, Dr. Dewar, upon the housing conditions of the navvies engaged upon the dock works at Rosyth; and, if not, why not?
