§ 44. Mr. Thurnham
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many people were treated by the National Health Services during 1985 as a result of accidents in the home caused by faulty electrical installation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Howard
This information is not available. The data collected at the 20 hospitals in the home accident surveillance system (HASS) include a provisional figures of 108 people who were treated at those hospitals in 1985 having had an electric current accident. This does not necessarily imply fault in either the appliance or the electrical installation involved.
