HC Deb 27 April 1933 vol 277 c262W

asked the Home Secretary if, with regard to the recent fire which occurred at a rum wharf, he will take steps to trace the cause of the outbreak, at the same time inquiring into the efficiency of the precautionary methods taken to prevent such outbreaks?


Inquiries have already been made by the factory inspectors, as well as by the Fire Brigade and the Port of London Authority, but the cause of the fire has not been ascertained, and the destruction was so great that it seems doubtful wheher any indicaion will be found. Any further inquiry possible will be made, and the question of the adequacy of the precautionary measures investigated.
