§ Mr. Ernie Ross
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many fatalities have occurred within the construction industry in Scotland in each year since 1980.
§ Mr. Gummer
I have been asked to reply.
Information for reported fatal injuries for 1980 to 1983 is as follows. Figures for 1984 are not yet available.
Fatalities in the Construction Industry 1980 to 1983—Scotland 1980 1981 1982 1983 Employees 16 22 19 13 *Self-employed 2 3 — 4 * Before 1981, fatalities to the self-employed were reported on a voluntary basis only and are not therefore comparable. Figures for 1981, 1982 and 1983 are based on reports resulting from a specific requirement under the Notification of Accidents and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1980.
