HC Deb 16 July 1965 vol 716 c140W
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.
