HC Deb 30 March 1896 vol 39 c384

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade, if he could state what has been the number of railway servants killed by accidents in which the movement of vehicles used exclusively on railways was concerned since August last, and in what number of such fatal accidents there have been inquiries held locally by inspectors or sub-inspectors of the Board?


Two hundred and thirty-two railway servants were killed by accidents of this class between August and the end of February. Of these, four were killed in train accidents. The inspecting officers held inquiries in these four cases, and of the remainder, 42 were inquired into by the sub-inspectors.
