§ Mr. D. J. Williams
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power how many miners in South Wales have been certified to be suffering from pneumoconiosis since 1st January, 1952; how many have remained in employment at the collieries; and how many have been employed elsewhere.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
In the first half of 1952 there were 456 new cases under the National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Act and 53 new cases under the Workmen's Compensation Acts. I regret that the available statistics do not enable the subsequent employment history of these men to be traced.
