§ MR. CHANNING
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether Her Majesty's Government have considered the great variety of points as to which litigation appears to have become necessary owing to the indefiniteness of the terms of the Workmen's Compensation Act; and whether legislation will be proposed next session to remove ambiguities shown to exist in the provisions of the said Act.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I believe the hon. Gentleman is right in saying that there has been a great deal of litigation in connection with this matter, but I am not aware that any facts have come to light to indicate the necessity of bringing in an amending measure.
