HC Deb 14 October 1915 vol 74 c1449

asked whether, in the event of a workman being brought before the Munitions Court charged with some offence under the Act and found not guilty and discharged, he has any claim to compensation or costs for loss of time and wages; against whom such action would lie; and by what process it could be pursued?


There is no provision under the Munitions of War Act for compensation in such cases as described by my hon. Friend, so that the position in regard to proceedings before a munitions tribunal would be the same as that in regard to proceedings before any other Court of Law. The question whether compensation would be recoverable in any case depends upon a number of legal considerations, upon which I am not in a position to express an opinion.
