Correction to Commons Written Answer

Volume 713: debated on Wednesday 21 October 2009

Statement

My honourable friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change (David Kidney) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

I would like to inform the House that a Written Answer I gave on 12 October 2009 (Official Report, col. 445W) to the honourable Member for Bassetlaw was incorrect.

It should not have included reference to the figures including services claims made under chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and vibration white finger schemes.

The number of coal health claims that were eligible for a vibration white finger services claim is shown in the table below.

We are unable to provide the number of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease claims that were eligible for a services claim as these figures are included within the Schedule 11 calculations under the terms of the claims handling agreement, and it is not possible to isolate them.
