HC Deb 20 October 1909 vol 12 c438W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that four fatal accidents have taken place recently, three occurring in the space of 14 days, upon buildings in course of construction in Hull; and if he will state when it is intended to carry into law the recommendations of the Building Accidents Committee?


As the question only appeared on the Paper this morning there has not been time to obtain a report on the subject of the accidents referred to; but, as the hon. Member is aware, the legislation which is necessary in order to enable the recommendations of the Building Accidents Committee to be carried into effect has already been introduced, and I hope that it will be possible to pass it in the course of the next Session.
