§ Mr. W. THORNE
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the deaths of two men who were killed in consequence of the collapse of the scaffolding at the Birmingham Corporation electricity generating station; and, if so, whether he intends to investigate the cause of the accident?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
No, Sir, but perhaps the hon. Member has in mind an accident which is reported to have occurred on the 8th instant to two men employed by a Birmingham firm at the Leicester Corporation generating station. That accident is being investigated by the Factory Department.
