HC Deb 24 June 1935 vol 303 cc808-9
51. Mr. THORNE

asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a report from his factory inspector in connection with the fatal accident that happened at the Redbourne Steel Works, near Scunthorpe; and whether he can state the cause of the accident?


Yes, Sir; this accident was due to overwinding the gear used for hoisting some men engaged on the erection of a new blast furnace. The case is being followed up.
