HC Deb 11 July 1988 vol 137 c39W
Mr. Gale

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many incidents of fire have been reported, within the Channel tunnel site, during the present period of construction.

Mr. Nicholls

No fires have been reported to the Health and Safety Executive under the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) since 1 April 1987. Although I understand the Kent fire brigade has been called to deal with some fire-related incidents on a number of occasions, none was sufficiently serious to report to the HSE.
