HC Deb 31 October 1929 vol 231 c345W
Captain BOURNE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether civilian employés of the Department who receive injuries in the course of their employment are granted compensation; and, if so, can he state the terms on which such compensation is granted?


Civilian employés of the War Department who serve under conditions bringing them within the scope of the Workmen's Compensation Acts receive compensation for any injury sustained in their employment in accordance with the provisions of those Acts. Other civilian employés are eligible for compensation under the Superannuation Acts. The scales of compensation vary according to the circumstances.
