HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1653W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will give instructions to those responsible to cover in by means of a grille, or otherwise, parapets or platforms on the summits of cathedrals, or other high towers, to which the public are admitted?


I regret I have no power to give instructions on this subject, but in connection with the recent case which has led to the hon. Member's question, I have noted with satisfaction that the Cathedral authorities intend to take precautions to make a fall from the parapet impossible, and I hope their example will be followed by all authorities responsible for similar places to which the public have access.
