HC Deb 22 February 1945 vol 408 c976W
Mr. Woodburn

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what provision is made for the dependants of non-forces personnel lost in recent aircraft disasters; and whether pensions will be payable as if they were Service ranks on comparable duty.

Sir J. Anderson

Injuries sustained in crashes of Government aircraft are war injuries. The Personal Injuries (Civilian) Scheme therefore applies to all cases not covered by any other enactment such as the Civil Service Injury Warrants. Compensation under the Personal Injuries Scheme is on a flat rate basis.
