§ 10. Mr. GIBBINS
asked the Home Secretary if he will state the number of accidents that have occurred in the building industry during the last 12 months?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
The total number of accidents reported in 1928 under the buildings provisions of the Factory and Workshop Act, 1901, as provisionally ascertained, was 3,754, but this figure includes a substantial number of accidents to persons not employed in the building industry, and I am not at present in a position to give any separate figure for that industry. I shall be glad to forward the information to the hon. Member as soon as it is available.
