HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3207-8W

asked the Home Secretary if he will take steps to secure such Amendment of the Workmen's Compensation Act as will secure to widows and other dependants an increase of not less than 75 per cent, in their compensation so as to enable them to meet in some degree the increase in the cost of living caused by the reduced purchasing value of money compared with August, 1914?


I would refer the hon. Member to my replies to the previous question on this subject on the 28th November and 4th December. I am not at present in a position to make any statement.
