HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 c45W
Mr. Watkins

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will define the term "nervous shock of a commotional character," used by his Department in connection with the compensation payable under the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Scheme?

Sir W. Womersley

The term "nervous shock of a commotional character" as used by my Department refers to nervous shock resulting directly from physical violence, including concussion, blast or burial.
