HC Deb 16 June 1947 vol 438 cc182-3W
114. Mr. Ward

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there is to be an official inquiry into the cause of the recent fire at a rubber dump at Mitcham; and whether he is satisfied that an adequate water supply was available at the dump to deal with a possible outbreak of fire.

Mr. Belcher

The Director of Rubber is making investigations into the cause and circumstances of the fire and until his investigations are complete I am not in a position to comment.
