HC Deb 17 March 1910 vol 15 c519

asked whether, in the event of the Manx Legislature failing to pass at an early date a Workmen's Compensation Act in order to extend to Manx workmen the protection and compensation enjoyed by English workmen, he will take steps to extend the operations of the 1906 Act to the Isle of Man?


The island authorities were consulted in 1906 on the question of extending the provisions of the Bill to the Isle of Man, but they saw objection to this course, as an Employers Liability Act had only recently been passed which was considered sufficient for the needs of the island. No information has reached me to show the necessity of further legislation, but. I will communicate with the island authorities on the subject.
