HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 c218W
Mr. Wheatley

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the decision in Adams v. James Spencer & Co., 1951, S.C. 175, he will introduce legislation to amend Section 2 of the Law Reform (Personal Injuries) Act, 1948, to bring the law of Scotland into conformity with the law of England by excluding from damages in respect of a person's death any right to benefit under the National Insurance Acts, 1946, resulting from that person's death.

Mr. J. Stuart

The possibility of effecting the amendment of the law suggested is being kept in view.
