HC Deb 26 May 1966 vol 729 c152W
Mr. Ellis

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will investigate the circumstances in which a number of Bristol schoolgirls were taken to hospital on Friday, 20th May from Bristol North Baths suffering from the effects of chlorine gas; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. MacColl

I understand that the girls were affected by fumes caused by the mixing of chemicals when a lavatory at the baths was being cleaned.

The Bristol Council which is responsible for the management of the baths is investigating the matter and will no doubt take steps to prevent any recurrence.
