§ Mr. CECIL WILSON
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.
