§ 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.
