HC Deb 22 November 1911 vol 31 c1341W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of failures by insurance companies, as representing insured employers under the Workmen's Compensation Act, to duly pay the weekly compensation as awarded or agreed upon, thus causing expense to the workman in levying an execution to compel payment; and, as the procedure relating to costs in such cases is governed by the county court rules, and there is no provision whatever under the county court scale for granting costs upon the issuing of execution, will he take action to remedy this defect?


No representations to this effect have previously reached me. I am investigating the circumstances in the case referred to, and I am consulting the Lord Chancellor on the subject.
