HC Deb 22 November 1917 vol 99 cc1357-8

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether workmen employed in the service of the Crown receive compensation in the case of acci dent under a scheme which, certified by the Registrar of Friendly Societies in August, 1913, provided that half-pay or the sum of £1 a week, whichever is the least, should be paid during disablement; whether under the Workmen's Compensation (War Addition) Act, 1917, the amount to be paid by private employers has been increased by 25 per cent.; whether he can state for what reason no addition has been made in the amount of compensation payable to workmen in the employment of the Crown; and what action he proposes to take?


Workmen whose compensation claims fall to be dealt with under the schemes certified by the Chief Registrar of Friendly Societies, under the Workmen's Compensation Act, 1906, are entitled to receive and do receive the same additional payments as those received by workmen whose claims fall to be dealt with under the Act of 1906.
