§ Mr. G. W. H. JONES
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is prepared to increase the amount payable in the case of death under the Workmen's Compensation Act to the same extent as there has been an increase in the case of total incapacity?
§ Mr. SHORTT
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. Any amending legislation on the subject must await the report of the Departmental Committee which has been inquiring into the present system of workmen's compensation. I am informed that various proposals for increasing the amount payable in the case of death have been submitted to the Committee and are receiving their consideration.
