HC Deb 02 March 1925 vol 181 c48W

asked the Home Secretary when the Departmental Committee on Pensions for Silicosis is likely to present its Report?


I assume that the hon. Member refers to the inquiry which the Departmental Committee of Workmen's Compensation for Silicosis has been asked to make into the question of a scheme of compensation under the Workmen's Compensation (Silicosis) Acts for the grinding trades. I am assured that the inquiry will be proceeded with as expeditiously as possible, but it would not be practicable at present to say when the Committee are likely to be in a position to present their report.
