52. Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give wide publicity to existing provisions for compensation to members, of the public injured in tackling armed criminals or otherwise assisting the police in this respect.

Sir F. Soskice

Extensive publicity has already been given to the scheme administered by the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board for the compensation of persons injured by crimes of violence or while helping the police to deal with violent crime, and such steps as may be necessary will be taken from time to time to keep the public informed as to the working of the scheme.
