HC Deb 18 February 1914 vol 58 c951
68. Sir J. D. REES

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the comparative figures of fatal and non-fatal railway accidents according to the latest available figures in the United Kingdom, the United States of America, France, Germany, Austria, and Italy?

The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Burns)

The figures relating to non-fatal accidents cannot be compared, as the definition of a non-fatal accident differs in almost every case. [See Written Answers this date.]
