I have already explained to the hon. Member in a recent letter that compensation for injuries other than war injuries is only payable under the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Scheme to members of civil defence organisations. While I appreciate the valuable work performed by Traders Salvage Associations, I am unable to regard them as civil defence organisations within the meaning of the Personal Injuries (Emergency Provisions) Act.
