§ 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 576 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.
