Vol. 192 No. 3

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Benefits Under Workmen's Compensation Acts.


asked the Minister for Social Welfare if he is satisfied that the present rate of benefits payable under the Workmen's Compensation Acts is sufficient to meet the high cost of living; and, if not, if he will take steps to increase them immediately.

It is my intention to examine fully all aspects of the existing workmen's compensation scheme when the recommendations of the Commission on Workmen's Compensation are available.

Meanwhile, it is not proposed to alter the existing weekly payments or any other feature of the scheme.
