HC Deb 10 March 1937 vol 321 cc1157-8
84. Mr. Gardner

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to recent explosions in electrical distribution chambers built under the footway, one on 1st March at King's Road, Chelsea, and a second on 8th March in the Kentish Town Road; whether he is aware that in each case the heavy cover let into the pavement was blown upwards; and whether, with a view to prevention, he will invite research into the cause of this recurring danger to pedestrians?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

I am obtaining information in regard to these occurrences.
