HC Deb 28 July 1983 vol 46 c575W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what action Her Majesty's factory inspectorate is taking following the explosion at Anglesey Aluminium Powder Company; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Gummer

Her Majesty's factory inspectorate is carrying out a full investigation into the cause of the explosion.

Because of the technical and scientific problems of establishing causes after an explosion of this severity the investigations are likely to take some time. Until they are complete I cannot comment on the possible result, but I shall write to my hon. Friend as soon as the cause of the explosion has been established.
