§ 25. Mr. Thorne
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the cause of the accident at Prince's Dock, Liverpool, on Tuesday last, when one man was killed?
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir Samuel Hoare)
This accident was due to the falling of a roof truss which was being placed in position during the erection of a dock shed. The inquest has been adjourned until 11th May, and I should prefer not to make any fuller statement meanwhile.
