Mr. C. White

asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the weekly compensation being paid to Mr. Ernest Hough, Scropton Road, Hatton, Derby, consequent upon injuries received in the R.A.F. dump explosion; and whether he is prepared to defray the ambulance costs incurred in conveying Mr. Hough to hospital at the time of the accident.

Sir A. Sinclair

Pending settlement of his claim to compensation, Mr. Hough is receiving temporary advances, based on the scale of allowance under the Civilians Scheme for War Injuries, at the rate of 43s. 9d. a week less sickness benefit. Ambulance costs will be defrayed by my Department as part of any settlement.
