HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 cc50-1W
105. Mr. Pavitt

asked the Attorney-General if he will introduce legislation to provide automatic compensation for all personal injuries without regard to fault or blame on the lines of the scheme now approved by the new Zealand Government, details of which have been sent to him by the hon. Member for Willesden, West.

The Attorney-General

No. Such a fundamental change would need to be justified by a greater measure of public discussion and support than it has yet attracted. Its implications go well beyond merely legal considerations.
