Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform if he will provide a geographical breakdown of the 46,000 claims identified by Capita to his Department’s Yorkshire monitoring committee as not having made services claims for mining industrial diseases. (197662)

I am unsure to what the figure of 46,000 relates. Approximately 60,000 vibration white finger claimants were eligible to claim services on the basis of their medical staging for general damages but, for whatever reason, did not do so.
