§ 34. Mr. THORNE
asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a report from the factory inspector in connection with the death of an employé of the firm of Hull Ice Works, Limited, owing to the shafting not being properly fenced; if he is aware that the company were fined £50 and costs; whether he has 2034 received an application from the stipendiary magistrate for the fine to be handed over to the dependants of the deceased; and, if so, whether he intends taking any action in the matter?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I have received a report from the factory inspector giving particulars of this case and the recommendation of the stipendiary. I have decided to act on the recommendation, and award the fine to the widow.
§ Mr. THORNE
Will my right hon. Friend make inquiries as to how long this machine has been at work, and when was the last time that the factory inspector paid a visit to the works?
