HC Deb 14 June 1979 vol 968 c281W
Dr. John Cunningham

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he will announce the details of the fund for the payment of compensation under the Pneumoconiosis Compensation Act; when and how claims may be submitted under the Act; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mayhew

My right hon. Friend hopes to lay the draft regulations prescribing the amounts which will be payable by the time the Act comes into force on 4 July. Regulations as to the manner in which claims should be submitted will be made shortly to come into force on that date.
