§ 40. Mr. Thorne
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he can give any information in connection with the accident at Chatham Dockyard on Thursday last, when a mart was killed; and whether he can say what was the cause of the accident?
§ The Civil Lord of the Admiralty (Colonel Llewellin)
I regret to inform the hon. Member that a labourer was killed in Chatham Dockyard on Wednesday last, as the result of his being crushed between a travelling crane and a stanchion during his employment in a machine shop.
§ Colonel Llewellin
Yes, Sir; certainly. We have sent our sympathy to the relatives, and they will also get compensation under the scheme.
