§ 54. Mr. THORNE
asked the Home Secetrary whether he has received a report from his factory inspector with regard to one man being killed and two others injured through an explosion at a blast furnace at the Appleby Works, Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire; and whether he can state the last date when the water-cooling system was tested?

This explosion, which occurred on the 5th instant, is still under investigation, and I am not in a position at present to make any statement.
