Mr Clyde Cameron (HINDMARSH, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister for Labour and National Service, upon notice

What was the total amount paid in damages and, if available, legal costs, in settlement of common law actions in respect of deaths or injuries caused by industrial accidents in each State and Territory in each year since 1950.


Mr Snedden - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

No information is available from Commonwealth sources as to payments for settlement of common law actions in respect of employers' liabilities. Combined totals are available for each Stale for claims under Workers' Compensation and settlement of common law actions in respect of employers' liabilities. These are given in the attached table.
