§ Mr. Robert Howarth
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government how many children under the age of 16 years it is estimated have lost their lives in Lancashire while playing on derelict industrial sites or near open water courses which have not been adequately fenced by their private owners, during the last 10 years.
§ Mr. MacColl
I am afraid that this detailed information is not available. National figures of deaths from drowning 159W of children under 15 which are available do not provide sufficient guide to the size of this problem in Lancashire.
