HC Deb 19 January 1943 vol 386 c69W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give any information in connection with two men who were killed in East Ham on 20th December when they fell from a gas-holder that they were repairing?

Mr. Tomlinson

I understand that the suspended platform on which these two men were working collapsed owing to one of the suspending ropes coming loose at the top. The coroner stated that there was no evidence as to how it came loose.
