§ 44. Mr. THORNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he can give the House any information in connection with the fatal accident to Richard Sygroves, who was killed at Driffield aerodrome; and whether he can give the cause of the accident?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
This workman was an employé of a firm of contractors engaged upon constructional work at the Driffield aerodrome, which is being prepared for occupation as a Royal Air Force station. I regret that I am informed that he was struck by a scaffold board which fell from the roof.
