asked the Minister of National Insurance how many cases in Wales have been brought to her notice of workers who have contracted pneumoconiosis but are unable to claim compensation for loss of faculty because they do not work in a prescribed process.

I have no record of such cases as it is not the practice of the Pneumoconiosis Medical Panels to proceed to a diagnosis of the disease until it has been established that a claimant has worked in a prescribed occupation.
