HC Deb 11 March 1936 vol 309 cc2138-9W

asked the Secretary for Mines the number of accidents, fatal and otherwise, which occurred in the mines of Yorkshire during 1935, specifying the names of the mines involved?


137 fatal accidents, resulting in the deaths of 169 persons, and 406 serious non-fatal accidents resulting in injuries to 441 persons, occurred in mines under the Coal Mines Act, 1911, in Yorkshire during 1935. Information as to the number of other accidents is not yet available. Considerations of space prevent me from printing a list giving the individual particulars in a district which contains some 240 mines.
