HC Deb 07 March 1957 vol 566 c85W
11. Mrs. Mann

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the fact that road accidents are notifiable, if he will take steps to require home accidents, which bear a much higher death rate, to be notifiable as well.

Mr. Simon

I appreciate that, if this information could be assembled, it would provide valuable evidence regarding the causes of home accidents. But there are substantial difficulties in the way of adopting the hon. Lady's proposal, and on balance the Government do not think that the introduction of legislation for this purpose would be justified.
