HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 cc2374-5W

asked the Home Secretary why the figures relating to the number of accidents in shipbuilding establishments during 1915 to 1919 are not available?


The reduction of staff caused by the War made it impossible to tabulate the non-fatal accidents in factories and workshops during the period in question. The totals of the fatal accidents continued to be tabulated according to industry, and if the hon. Member so desires, I can forward to him the figures of fatal accidents in shipbuilding yards during the last 10 years.
