HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c211W
Mr. Finch

asked the Minister of National Insurance whether the Workmen's Compensation (Supplementation) Scheme is yet in operation.

Dr. Summerskill

Yes. The Scheme came into operation on 11th July. I am informed by the Board administering it that some 1,700 claims have been received since then. Allowances have already been awarded in over 300 cases and put into payment.
