HC Deb 12 March 1936 vol 309 c2337W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that the risk of accident among window cleaners is due to the lack of suitable safety attachments on London buildings; and if he will take legislative powers to remedy this failing?


I have no information as to the number of accidents to window cleaners or as to the extent to which they have been due to the fact that such an attachment was not available, but the absence of such attachments is certainly not the only cause. If, however, the hon. Member will send me any particulars in his possession I shall be prepared to consider them.
