§ 40. Mr. Thorne
asked the Home Secretary the cause of the lift accident at the Grand Hotel, Folkestone, on Saturday, when a boy, aged 17, was found dead in the well of the lift where he was employed?
§ Sir S. Hoare
I have obtained a report on the inquest. The verdict was accidental death; there was no direct evidence as to the cause of the accident and in the circumstances I should prefer not to express any opinion.
