§ 21. Mr. Proctor
asked the Paymaster-General if he will make a statement regarding the accident at Agecroft Colliery on Thursday, 19th June.
§ Sir I. Horobin
One man was killed and three seriously injured at Agecroft Colliery, Lancashire, on 19th June when a quantity of stone was flung down a sinking shaft by shots fired in a tunnel which was being driven towards it. H.M. Inspectors are investigating the accident. The House will, I am sure, wish to join with me in expressing sympathy to the relatives of the man who lost his life.
