HC Deb 19 June 1973 vol 858 cc66-7W
23. Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now make industrial-noise-induced deafness an industrial disability for which a pension can be awarded.

Mr. Dean

This will be considered in the light of the advice received from the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council, whose report on occupational deafness will, I understand, shortly be submitted to my right hon. Friend.
