HC Deb 10 October 1940 vol 365 c488W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in view of the Government's appeal to those engaged in the industries suplying essential war requirements to continue working after receiving the alert warning, such worker, and/or their dependants, will receive compensation and/or pensions on the same basis as those serving in the Navy, Army and Air Force?

Sir W. Womersley

I am to refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave in this House on 20th August to a Question by the hon. Member for West Bristol (Mr. Culverwell), of which I am sending him a copy. Compensation under the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Scheme is payable on the same scale as for a private soldier.

Forward to
