HC Deb 15 May 1947 vol 437 cc187-9W
Mr. W. Griffiths

asked the Secretary of State for War when the hon. Member for Moss Side may expect a reply to his letter

respectively in 1938 and 1946; and, in the case of 1946 exports, to which countries the mahogany was sent.

Mr. Creech Jones

The exports in cubic feet are as follow:

of 14th April, 1947, concerning the case of T/ 3711763 Driver C. Hennessey.

Mr. Bellenger

My hon. Friend will by now have received a letter about this case.

Mr. Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will take immediate action to settle the compensation claim of Mr. Willie Dawson, 732, Bradford Road, Birkenshaw, near Bradford, the liability for whose accident on 25th May, 1946, whilst working with the R.A.P.C. at Bradford, has been admitted by his Department; and what action is being taken to give permanent employment in the Bradford area to Mr. Dawson, who has had 25 years' employment in the Civil Service.

Mr. Bellenger

Liability under the Government scheme of compensation for injury was admitted by my Department and hurt pay under the scheme was authorised on expiration of Mr. Dawson's full sick pay. So far as I am aware no further compensation-is due. Further inquiries are, however, being made into his case to verify that this is so. I understand that Mr. Dawson is at present in full employment with the Ministry of Labour and National Service at Bradford. The question of his establishment is, therefore, now a matter for that Department.
