§ 75. Mr. Kelley
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance by what method his local officers compute the pre-accident weekly earnings of insured persons, when assessing their entitlement to payments under the Colliery Workers' Supplementary Compensation Scheme.
§ Lieut.-Commander Maydon
Although my right: hon. Friend's Department pays this supplement in certain cases, it has no responsibility for determining the pre-accident earnings. This is a matter for the National Committee and the National Coal Board.
