§ Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if she is aware that Mr. F. Boden, of 25 Warren Street, Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, contracted silicosis after working for a pottery firm for 43 years, and now suffers from bronchitis and emphysema; what is the total amount he receives each week; and if she will review the rates to be paid to him until he is medically certified fit enough to resume his employment.
§ Mr. Harold Davies
I understand that Mr. Boden has submitted a claim for industrial disablement benefit. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as a decision on his claim has been given.
