asked the Home Secretary if he has received any representations with regard to the question asked by the hon. Member for Shipley about a fatal accident which occurred at Messrs. Levers' new dock at Bromborough, and to the reply given by the then Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department on the 26th November, 1925; and whether he can give any further information on the subject?

Yes, Sir. I brought the case at once to the notice of the Cheshire County Council as the authority responsible, and the Council have since reported that the firm of contractors engaged in the construction of the dock, by whom the boy Ellis was employed, have been prosecuted and fined. It is right to add that Messrs. Lever Bros. were in no way responsible for what occurred.
