HC Deb 06 November 1918 vol 110 c2144W

asked the Minister of Munitions whether he received representations in August last from the hon. Member for South Carnarvonshire as to the conveyance of the workmen of the Aluminium Corporation to and from the work in the neighbourhood of Capel Curig at an altitude of over 1,000 ft. in open trucks; and whether the company has now provided satisfactory protection for the men?


Two Foden wagons and trailers are used for the conveyance of workers of the Aluminium Company to and from their depot at Llugy. Although it is understood that no complaints have been made to the firm by the men themselves, as soon as the question was brought to the notice of the Ministry by my hon. Friend the firm were approached with regard to providing covered vehicles. Some difficulty has been experienced in procuring these, but in the meantime the present wagons are being covered so as to afford the most effective protection possible in the circumstances.
