HC Deb 18 May 1911 vol 25 cc2278-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps, if any, have been taken to carry out the recommendation of the Board's inspector with regard to the safety of platelayers working in Penge tunnel [Cd. 5,179, p. 52]; whether refuges have been provided; and, if not, what he intends to do in the matter?


The Board of Trade have been informed by the railway company that the construction of refuges in Penge tunnel will be proceeded with. I have asked the company what progress has been made with the work, and will communicate with my hon. Friend on receipt of their reply.
