HC Deb 14 May 1987 vol 116 cc318-20W
Mr. Nellist

asked the Paymaster General if he will update the answer to the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. Sheerman) Official Report, column 12, of 8 April 1986, regarding accidents to YTS trainees, to the latest available date.

Mr. Lee

The tables provide YTS accident figures for fatalities and major injuries for the latest available quarterly periods. Table(a) gives figures for the quarter 1 January 1986 to 31 March 1986. Table (b) gives figures for the quarters 1 April 1986 to 31 March 1987. It should be noted that the two tables cannot be directly compared in respect of major injuries. Up to 31 March 1986 major injuries were classified according to the severity criteria laid down in the Notification of Accidents and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1980. From 1 April 1986 major injuries are classified according to the severity criteria laid down in the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1985. This has had the effect of reclassifying some accidents from the minor category into the major category.
