§ MR. J. KEIR HARDIE
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will cause to be published monthly in the Labour Gazette, in addition to the number of accidents in a locality, the causes thereof?
§ MR. J. BRYCE
The Labour Gazette publishes monthly summaries of certain classes of accidents in (1) factories and workshops, (2) mines, (3) on railways, (4) at sea, (5) in employments within the scope of the Notices of Accidents Act, 1894. The classification of causes is by no means an easy matter, and the space available in the Gazette is very limited; but if the hon. Member will state more specifically what changes he desires to be made in the published Returns of any of the above classes of accidents, the suggestions will be carefully considered.
