HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 c182W
93. Mr. R. Williams

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he is aware of the widespread dissatisfaction caused by inadequate assessments of degrees of disablement in cases of industrial injuries; and whether he will consult the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council thereon.

Mr. Peake

No. The assessments are made by independent medical boards and medical appeal tribunals, and I have no reason to think that they do not conform to the principles and standards laid down in the Act and Regulations.
