§ Major Sir BERTRAM FALLE
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware of the proposal to increase the amounts payable under the Workmen's Compensation Act; if he can say if and what increase the Admiralty propose under the dockyard compensation scheme; if the same will be retrospective; and from what date?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Baldwin)
Pending consideration by the Government of the Report of the recent Committee on Workmen's Compensation and the passing of such amending legislation as may be thought desirable, I am not in a position to make any statement as to the effect of such legislation on the existing schemes under the Act.
§ Sir B. FALLE
The right hon. Gentleman is aware that these workmen's compensation is not dependent upon the Workmen's Compensation Act, but is a special scheme?
