HC Deb 17 June 1913 vol 54 cc204-5
55. Mr. WARDLE

asked whether, under the Regulation of Railway Act, 1871, Section 6, and the Board of Trade Order of 21st December, 1906, provision is made for the transfer from the non-fatal to the fatal list of accidents in the case of death resulting after the accident is reported to the Board of Trade; and what period of time is allowed to elapse between the accident and death in recording such accident in the fatal or non-fatal list?


Where an injury originally returned as non-fatal subsequently proves to be fatal, the accident is recorded as a fatal one if the death occurs before the issue of the annual figures, i.e., within about three months after the end of the year in which the accident occurred.
