To ask the Prime Minister whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a new scheme of compensation in case of injury to or death by accident of any employee in Government establishments, in lieu of the scheme approved by the registrar in. 1905; and, if so, whether sufficient time will be given to those interested to consider the same before it is submitted to the registrar for approval.

It is not intended to introduce a new scheme; but the existing scheme will be submitted to the Registrar of Friendly Societies for re-certification under Section 15 of the Act. No workman will be obliged to enter into a new contract under the scheme if he prefers to abide by the provisions of the Act.
