HC Deb 29 April 1982 vol 22 c312W
Mr. Dobson

asked the Secretary of State for Energy when his Department received from North Thames Gas its report into the gas explosion in Richbell, Boswell Street, London WC1, on 6 October 1981; whether it will publish the report; whether it intends to prosecute for negligence; and if so when.

Mr. John Moore

My Department received on 23 October 1981 a copy of the North Thames Gas report into this incident. The question whether to institute a prosecution under the gas safety regulations is under consideration. Publication of the North Thames Gas report is a matter for the British Gas Corporation. I shall ask the chairman to write to the hon. Member.
