HC Deb 23 April 1929 vol 227 c707
28. Sir R. THOMAS

asked the Postmaster-General what action he has taken, or is about to take, as a result of the Report made by the Commissioners appointed to inquire into the circumstances of the New Oxford Street explosions of 20th and 21st December, who recommend the immediate examination of the whole of the existing Post Office tube, the installation of adequate ventilation, and the employment of continuous detectors to give warning of the presence of gas; and can he made a statement regarding the estimated extent and the cost of the alterations required?


The Commissioners' recommendations are receiving the close attention of my advisers, but the nature and extent of the work involved is such that it must be some time before it is possible to make any statement of the kind desired.
