To ask the Attorney-General if he will list by category the United Kingdom's accident compensation payment laws; when they were last brought up to date in line with inflation; and if he intends a further update in line with the current rate of inflation.

With the exception of the statutory provisions relating to damages for bereavement under the Administration of Justice Act 1982, which apply in England and Wales and Northern Ireland, it is not clear to what provisions the hon. Member may be referring, and there is, therefore, no further specific information which I am able to give. As to the position in relation to bereavement damages, I refer him to the reply which I gave to a question from the hon. Member for Liverpool, Mossley Hill (Mr. Alton) on 12 January 1990 at column 774.
