§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I beg to move, "That leave be given to introduce a Bill to provide for the grant of pensions and other allowances to certain persons injured whilst employed in warlike operations and their dependants, and for other purposes connected therewith."
The object of this Bill is to make provision for civilians who may not be covered by the Workmen's Compensation Act, and are not under any provision made by the War Office or Admiralty. Men afloat would not be under the Workmen's Compensation Act, and the purpose of the Money Resolution and this Bill is to provide for those cases.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill ordered to be brought in by Dr. Macnamara, Mr. Harold Baker, and Mr. Montagu. Presented accordingly, and read the first time; to be read a second time to-morrow, and to be printed.
§ Ordered, "That this House will tomorrow resolve itself into a Committee to consider of making provision for the grant of pensions and other allowances to certain persons if injured whilst employed in connection with warlike operations, and to their dependants, and for purposes connected therewith."—[Mr. Gulland.]
