HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 c754W

asked the Minister of Munitions if compensation is payable to the sufferers in the recent explosion in Yorkshire; and, if so, when will the claims be met?


The explosion did not take place at a Government Factory, but at a factory belonging to a Joint Stock Company. The claims are being investigated as rapidly as possible, and I am informed that the company hopes to settle a considerable number of them very shortly.
