HC Deb 25 June 1925 vol 185 c1689

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that under the Workmen's Compensation Act proper provision is not made for the use of X-ray photographs; and whether he will take steps to remedy this?


If, as I assume, my hon. Friend is referring to the use of X-ray photographs in connection with the examination of injured workmen by the medical referees, he has been misinformed. Provision is made in the Regulations whereby, in any case of difficulty, the medical referee can obtain an X-ray examination; and X-ray photographs are in fact frequently arranged for by the medical referees. No representation has been made to me as to the need for any further provision.
