HC Deb 16 July 1925 vol 186 cc1525-6
30. Mr. SHORT

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that Messrs. Chance and Hunt, chemical manufacturers, Wednesbury, deposit chemical refuse on a tip near their works; that the tip is open to the public, and that certain children have suffered injury by being burnt about the feet; and will he exercise his powers to arrange for the tip to be fenced?


I am inform.nl that this refuse is tipped on private land, and that there is no danger to anyone unless he is trespassing. I have no authority to direct that the tip be fenced, and it seems doubtful whether it would be reasonable to expect this to be done, but I am communicating with the town council on the subject.
