HC Deb 05 May 1983 vol 42 c119W
20. Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received concerning the effect upon the number of claims by victims of violent crime of raising the lower limit on claims under the criminal injuries compensation scheme.

Mr. Mayhew

Apart from earlier questions on the subject from other hon. Members, representations about the effect of raising the lower limit have been made to me by the Police Federation and the Bristol victims support scheme.
