HC Deb 05 November 1936 vol 317 c223
20. Mr. THORNE

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give the House any information in connection with the explosion at the milling works of Messrs. Bodey, Jerrim and Denning, of Queen Street, Bristol; and the number of persons injured and the cause of the explosion?


I understand that 11 persons were injured as a result of this explosion which occurred last Thursday night. The cause will be fully investigated, but this may take some little time owing to the amount of debris to be removed.
