42. Mr. W. Joseph Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, seeing that the report of the Departmental Committee set up to consider certain questions relating to the Workmen's Compensation Act has now been issued, it is the intention of the Government to implement this report and embody its recommendations in legislation at an early date?
43. Mr. David Adams
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps the Government propose to take with respect to the report, recently issued, of the Departmental Committee 990 on certain questions arising under the Workmen's Compensation Acts?
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir Samuel Hoare)
I am afraid I cannot add anything to the previous replies on this subject on the 21st and 24th of last month.
Are we to understand that the right hon. Gentleman is just going to receive this report and do nothing to implement its findings?
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that, if legislation on workmen's compensation is brought in to deal merely with what is recommended in this report, it will not be satisfactory to the workmen?
§ Mr. Williams
Can I have a reply to my question as to when we are likely to have a reply from the right hon. Gentleman on this matter?
