§ 102. Mr. Benjamin Smith
asked the Home Secretary the number of fatal and other accidents in British shipyards for each month for the period 1936 to September, 1939, inclusive?
§ Mr. Peake
I regret that the figures asked for are not available and could not be compiled without great labour, but in order to enable a comparison to be made between the figures recently given to the hon. Member for the period October, 1939, to February, 1940, and the figures for the corresponding period in the previous year, I have had figures got out for the period October, 1938, to February, 1939. I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate them in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following are the figures:
|Shipbuilding and Repairing Yards.|
|Accidents reported under the Factories Act during October 1938 to February 1939 inclusive.|
