HC Deb 15 May 1916 vol 82 c1105

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to insure the whole of the railwaymen against injuries by reason of enemy air craft or bombardment while on duty or proceeding to or from duty on the company's premises, so that compensation will be paid in the event of injuries being received; and, if the existing Workmen's Compensation Act requires amendment to bring in these men, will he take prompt measures to deal with the same?
