§ 41. Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the statement of the Greenwich Coroner at the inquest on Henry Overall, a tinsmith employed at Woolwich Arsenal, who died through lead poisoning; if so, will he state whether inquiries are being made as to whether the shop was properly ventilated to take away the fumes; and why the necessary milk they ought to drink was not obtainable?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
The inquest stands adjourned and in the meantime I cannot, of course, make any statement on the case.
