I understand that the committee have almost finished taking evidence and have commenced consideration of their report. I am afraid, however, that it is not possible to say at present when the report will be completed. The hon. Member will appreciate that the inquiry is not limited to miner's nystagmus but covers also the important questions of the general medical procedure and arrangements under the Acts, and the working of existing provisions and practice in regard to lump sum settlements.
