HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 c1528W

asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the incidents attending the deaths by fire of cinema operators at the Welling parish hall, Welling, Kent; and whether, in view of the conditions revealed by the coroner's inquest, he proposes to take any action?


Yes, Sir. I have asked the local authority responsible for the enforcement of the regulations made under the Cinematograph Act, 1909, for a full report. I cannot make any further statement at present.
