HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 c51W
Mr. Whitaker

asked the Attorney-General (1) whether he will introduce legislation to provide that damages in personal injury actions should be itemised under specifically apportioned heads;

(2) whether he will seek to provide actuarial assistance for judges and juries in personal injury actions;

(3) whether he is satisfied that damages for personal injuries have kept pace with the fall in the value of money; and if he will make a statement.

The Attorney-General

All these matters are at present being examined by the Law Commission as part of Item VI of its First Programme. It is better to await the results of that examination before taking action in these matters.
