HC Deb 23 January 2003 vol 398 cc515-6W
Martin Linton

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many reports of hazards to pedestrians have been(a) reported and (b) investigated by the Health and Safety Executive as a result of Transport for London road works in Wandsworth between 2001–02. [92126]

Mr. Jamieson

The information requested is not readily available. Reports to the Health and Safety Executive regarding hazards to pedestrians are normally recorded as complaints concerning the contractor actually doing the work, not the ultimate client. During the period 2001–02 HSE recorded a total of 18 complaints concerning public safety in the London borough of Wandsworth: in 14 of these it proved possible for HSE to carry out investigations. From a further search of available data there is no record of any of these complaints having concerned Transport for London roadwork's.
