HC Deb 14 July 1980 vol 988 c428W
Mr. Harold Walker

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if payments for absence from work due to industrial injury are within the scope of the proposals contained in Cmnd. 7864.

Mr. Prentice

All periods of incapacity for work are within the scope of the proposals put forward in Cmnd. 7864. Decisions on future benefit provision for incapacity caused by industrial injury will be taken in the light of comments received on that Green Paper and on the discussion document about the review of the industrial injuries scheme published in February last.
