HC Deb 25 February 1952 vol 496 cc93-4W
120. Mr. J. B. Hynd

asked the Minister of National Insurance why no arrangements are made for reimbursing loss of wages incurred by victims of industrial injury in having to attend regional limb- fitting centres for treatment in their normal working time.

Mr. Peake

Such persons will usually be in receipt of a disablement pension reflecting the severity of the injury, and I can see no grounds for adding a new benefit to compensate specifically for loss of wages during limb-fitting.
