Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether he can give the percentage of deaths by drowning, wreck, or other accidents in the fishing industry in the years 1912 and 1913 as compared with 1.27 per cent. and 1.74 per cent. respectively among persons employed underground in the United Kingdom?


I have been asked to reply to this question. Figures for the calendar year are not available. For the year ending 30th June, 1913, the percent-age was.28 and for the year ending 30th June, 1914,.34.
