§ 33. Mr. CROOKS
asked the Home Secretary whether steps will be taken to provide that workmen injured by enemy air raid or bombardment shall be compensated on the same basis as under the Workmen's Compensation Act when the accident is in any sense due to the nature of the employment?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Brace)
I am advised that according to recent judicial decisions a workman injured by air raid or bombardment in the course of his employment will be entitled to compensation under the Act as it stands at present, if he can show that by reason of his employment he was exposed to special risk not shared by the public at large
