HC Deb 26 June 1950 vol 476 c180W
90. Mr. Nally

asked the Attorney-General if he has examined the circumstances in which large quantities of highly dangerous substances such as sodium cyanide were found upon rubbish tips in the Bilston area; and if he has brought the matter to the notice of the Director of Public Prosecutions with a view to proceedings being taken against firms or individuals whose actions and lack of proper precautions endangered the life of children in the area.

The Attorney-General

Yes. Immediately the facts were reported the Chief Constable took every possible step to warn the public by notices, handbills, slides on cinema screens and a message broadcast by the B.B.C. Inquiries to discover who was responsible for dumping the sodium cyanide are still proceeding.
