65. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power the cause of the accident at the electric power station near Newport last week in which two men were killed and several injured; and what report he has received under Regulations 21 (c) of the Electricity Supply Regulations, 1937.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Preliminary reports on the accident at Uskmouth Generating Station on 18th January show that part of the rotor in one of the generating sets broke through its casing, but why this happened is still being investigated.
