§ Mr. McENTEE
asked the Home Secretary with regard to the case of ex-Prison Officer A.M. Graham, late of Wands-worth prison, who has been awarded 10s. 6d. per week under the Workmen's Compensation Act in respect of injuries received by having been stabbed in the back by a prisoner with a shoemaker's knife, under what statutory authority the compensation was granted?
Sir J. GILIMOUR
The Workmen's Compensation Act is itself the statutory authority for this grant, which is supplementary to a pension under the Superannuation Acts.
