MR. CHANGING (Northampton, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the advisability of requiring Railway Companies, in making Returns of accidents to railway servants under Section 6 of the Act of 1871, to state whether an injury arising from an accident is of a temporary or permanent character; and whether, in the latter case, he will in future direct Railway Companies to send in, after a suitable interval, further Returns showing the then condition of the injured railway servant, and stating whether the injury has resulted in permanent disablement?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE HOARD OF TRADE (Mr. MUNDELLA,) Sheffield, Brightside
I have appointed a Committee to consider the question of the Accident Returns, and the points raised by my hon. Friend shall receive the consideration of that Committee.
