HC Deb 03 August 1944 vol 402 c1644W
Mr. Cary

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will give an assurance that he will consider civilian claims for personal injuries received when a British aircraft crashed at Pendlebury, on Sunday, 3oth July, when returning from operations; and that a claim from any person who is partially or totally incapacitated, or in some other way is deserving of compensation, will be treated, exactly as if the injury had been sustained as the result of direct enemy attack.

Sir W. Womersley

Injuries sustained in the incident mentioned are within the definition of "war injuries" and the injured persons will be eligible for any compensation which would have been payable under the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Scheme if their injuries had resulted from direct enemy attack.
