To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the number of working hours lost as a result of industrial injury in 1992.

The figures for 1992 are not available. An estimate of absence from work due to workplace injury is available for the year 1989–90 from the special supplement of questions on accidents to the 1990 Labour Force Survey. An estimated 23·2 million days absence occurred in Great Britain in 1989–90. This figure is equivalent to about 170 million hours lost for a five day working week of 37 hours.
