§ 61. Mr. PIRIE
asked the Lord Advocate whether the advice he has given to the National Insurance Commissioners in Scotland with regard to trawl fishermen will cover the case of those sharemen who are really the employés of owners of boats, so far as receiving benefit under the Workmen's Compensation Act, but who have hitherto been debarred from receiving its benefits?
§ The LORD ADVOCATE (Mr. Ure)
The question, what workmen are entitled to participate in the benefits of the Workmen's Compensation Act, is one exclusively for the Courts of Law to determine.
MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
Is not the advice the right hon. Gentleman has given in regard to the question diametrically opposed to the custom under the Workmen's Compensation Act?
