§ 106 and 107. Dr. Stross
asked the Minister of National Insurance (1) how many miners in the North Staffordshire area have been certified to be suffering from miners' nystagmus since July, 1948: and how many of these have returned to work below ground;
(2) how many miners in North Staffordshire who have been certified to be suffering from miners' nystagmus have, after examination by the Medical Board, been advised they are suffering no loss of faculty, and are thereby deprived of pension or gratuity and hardship allowance.
§ Dr. Summerskill
I regret that the records are not kept in such a way as to184W provide separate figures for North Staffordshire. As regards information which will become available later, I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to his Questions on 4th April.
