Mr. Win Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment, pursuant to his answer of 16 March,Official Report, column 719, what information is collected by his Department about outdoor education centres.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The Health and Safety Executive has collected information about standards of health and safety appropriate to the activities that are undertaken at outdoor education centres and about the locations of centres. The information has been gathered with the help of organisations such as the Sports Council, tourist boards and national governing bodies, and the HSE has drawn on local knowledge in the area which are participating in the proposed special programme of inspections.

I also refer the hon. Member to the answer given to him on 28 March 1994, Official Report, columns 524–25.

Mr. Barron

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment how many deaths were reported to the Health and Safety Executive in each region in each year since 1983 in(a) agriculture, forestry and fisheries, (b) energy and water supply, (c) manufacturing, (d) construction and (e) the service sector; and how many of these were deaths of (i) employees, (ii) self-employed and (iii) members of the public.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

Figures for the financial years 1986–87 to 1992–93 are provided in the tables which have been placed in the Library. Fatal injuries for the years 1983 to 1985 were assigned to an earlier industrial classification and aggregation on a regional basis into the sectors specified is not possible except at disproportionate cost.
