asked the Prime Minister whether any decision has yet been reached with regard to compensation of war injured civilians after consideration by the Government of the Report of the Select Committee on Equal Compensation?

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to her on 16th March last.

In view of the fact that this matter has been consistently discussed for two years, may I ask whether, if I put down a Question next week to the right hon. Gentleman, he will be in a position to give me a definite answer?

I am not prepared to enter into any precise engagement at this moment.

Would this recommendation of the Select Committee come within the scope of the right hon. Gentleman's Four Year Plan and be carried out within that period?
