HC Deb 11 February 1932 vol 261 c1012
39. Sir W. JENKINS

asked the Home Secretary what number of men have claimed compensation who are suffering from silicosis in South Wales; the number who succeeded in their claim; and the number refused, if any, and upon what grounds


Separate figures for South Wales are not available, but the Returns for Great Britain show that in 1929 there were 12 eases, and in 1930 18 cases of coalminers who recovered compensation for disablement from silicosis. The Returns for 1031 are only now being collected. I regret that I am not in a position to give the total number of claims made or refused, or the reasons for refusal.
