HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1466
59. Mr. BYRNE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention has been drawn to the amount paid under the Workmen's Compensation Act; if he is aware that the amounts for accidents and deaths are the same as were paid in pre-war days; and if he will take into consideration the reduction in the purchasing power of the sovereign, which is estimated to be 75 per cent., and have the amounts awarded under the Workmen's Compensation Act increased accordingly?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for South-West Ham on this subject on Wednesday last.
