§ Miss Maynard
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many children under 16 years of age were injured or killed on farm tractors in the first three quarters of the current year as compared with the same period in 1979; and what were the figures for North Yorkshire over the same period.
§ Mr. Mayhew
Three children under 16 years were killed driving or riding as passenger on farm tractors in the course of agricultural operations during 1 January 1979–30 September 1979; one similar fatality has arisen in the same period this year. None of these fatalities occurred in North Yorkshire. Details of non-fatal accidents to children under 16 years of age are not available.
