HC Deb 26 July 1990 vol 177 c484W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he has any plans to extend the categories of claimants eligible for industrial disablement benefit on the grounds of occupational deafness.

Mr. Scott

We are awaiting a report from the Industrial Injuries Advisory Council on measures to improve the administration and operation of disablement benefit provision for occupational deafness. This report will be considered and evaluated before any firm decision is made whether to extend further the list of prescribed occupations.
