HC Deb 12 April 1989 vol 150 c582W
Mrs. Fyfe

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will estimate the number of accidents that go unreported in the agriculture industry.

Mr. Nicholls

All cases of fatal injury in the course of agricultural work activities are reported to the Health and Safety Executive's Her Majesty's agricultural inspectorate. It is not known what proportion of other reportable accidents from agricultural activities go unreported, but it is thought to be more than 50 per cent.
