§ Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the Home Secretary whether the inquiry which was held at Edmonton on the 22nd July last in respect of the munition works was in response, wholly or partly, 914W to the application of the Southgate Council; and, if so, why the Southgate Council was not given an opportunity of being heard?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The inquiry was held in response to a request from the Edmonton Urban District Council, in whose district the works were situated, and referred only to allegations of illegal deposit of explosives in that district. The arrangements for the inquiry were left in the hands of the council.
