§ Sir T. BRAMSDON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many cases there are in the royal dockyards and other naval establishments of men who are receiving pensions for injuries awarded under the Workmen's Compensation Act and in respect of which no increase has been accorded owing to the pensions increase scheme not applying to such payments; and whether their Lordships will make arrangements whereby such pensions can be treated in the same way as ordinary ones?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The number of recipients from naval funds of weekly payments of compensation under the Workmen's Compensation Act or the schemes thereunder was approximately 750 on the 16th August last, the date of the Pensions (Increase) Act. The Government are unable to adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
