HC Deb 07 November 1955 vol 545 cc150-1W
60. Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance which occupational diseases have been added to the schedule in the past four years; and what are the tests which must be satisfied before any disease can be classified as occupational.

Mr. Peake

Papilloma of the bladder was prescribed as an industrial disease under the National Insurance (Industrial Injuries) Acts in 1953. The conditions which must be satisfied before a disease can be so prescribed are laid down in Section 55 (2) of the 1946 Act.
