Mr. Remnant

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what visits were made by his inspectors to the premises of the Rainbow Firework Company Limited, Finchampstead, Berkshire, during 1954 and 1955; what recommendations were made; and what steps were taken to ensure that these recommendations and safety regulations under the Explosives Act, 1875, were complied with.

This factory was inspected by Her Majesty's Inspectors of Explosives once in 1954 and twice in 1955. On each occasion, a number of recommendations were made on points of detail relating to safety precautions, and the premises were specially inspected to ascertain whether the recommendations made on the previous visit were being complied with.
