HC Deb 17 December 1929 vol 233 cc1202-3
Major OWEN

(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary for Mines whether he can give particulars as to the causes of the accident at Llanberis Quarry yesterday, which resulted in the death of three men?

The SECRETARY for MINES (Mr. Ben Turner)

I regret that I am not in a position to give the House any detailed information about the unfortunate event referred to, which occurred last night. His Majesty's Divisional Inspector of Mines for the district received notification of the accident this morning, and a senior inspector is on his way to the scene of the accident. I will supply the hon. and gallant Member with full details as soon as I receive them.
