§ SIR A. K. ROLLIT (Islington, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what steps the Board have taken, or intend to take, in order to inform themselves as to when it may be desirable or not to appoint a medical assessor in the terms of Section 3, Sub-section 1, of the Notice of Accidents Act, 1894?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (MR. J. BRYCE, Aberdeen)
The Accident Returns are examined, and in cases of sufficient importance the Board of Trade appoint a competent person to hold an investigation. No inquiry has yet been held in which the appointment of a medical assessor has been found to be necessary, but each case will be considered on its merits.
