For the period from June, 1965, to May, 1966, the average number of men and women claimants receiving injury benefit in respect of incapacity caused by industrial accidents or prescribed diseases is estimated to have represented 0.9 per cent. of the total number of persons insured for injury benefit in Wales. The corresponding figures for Scotland and England were 0–5 and 0.3 per cent.
