HC Deb 04 March 1936 vol 309 cc1392-3
89. Mr. THORNE

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give the House any information in regard to the accident to a youth at the metal window-frame makers, Messrs. Williams and Williams, of Chester; whether he can state the cause of the accident; and whether the machinery in question was properly guarded?


I understand that this accident occurred on a power press when the guard was not in place, and that the firm were prosecuted and fined £50.
