HC Deb 21 November 1966 vol 736 c215W
Mr. Concannon

asked the Minister of Social Security if she will place Dupuytren's contracture on the prescribed list of industrial injuries.

Mr. Harold Davies

No. This condition does not satisfy the requirements for prescription as set out in Section 56(2) of the Industrial Injuries Act 1965. The consensus of medical opinion is that the condition is constitutional in origin and is not associated with occupation.
