HC Deb 08 June 1964 vol 696 c13W
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.
