asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what progress has been made in the negotiations initiated by the Central Committee for Hospital Medical Services of the BMA to secure compensation for doctors who are at special risk because of their duties in the National Health Service; and if he will make a statement.

Sir K. Joseph

I am still considering a claim for improvements in the benefits payable to junior hospital doctors who may die or become permanently incapacitated in the course of their duries.
