HC Deb 25 January 1937 vol 319 cc575-6
62. Mr. Thorne

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give the House any information in connection with the accident at the railway siding of the Earl's Court Exhibition ground; the number of persons injured; the cause of the accident; and the number of accidents that have taken place at the Earl's Court Exhibition site since the work began?

Mr. Lloyd

This particular accident has been reported to the Ministry of Transport, and is under investigation. So far as I am aware, this is the only accident in connection with the Earl's Court enterprise in which the railway has been involved. The engine driver and a passenger were injured, neither, I understand, seriously. As regards the last part of the Question, the number of accidents reported to the Factory Department as occurring at the Earl's Court site since work began there is 218.
