asked the Home Secretary whether he can give any information about the explosion at the junction of Dean Street and Romilly Street on the night of 29th May; what amount of damage was done; if any people were injured; and what was the cause of the explosion?

I am informed that this incident is the subject of a criminal charge, the trial of which is pending. In these circumstances all I can properly say is that the damage was not extensive and that happily nobody was injured.
