Press Statement No #11 October 1973

COMMITTEE OF INQUIRY INTO A NATIONAL REHABILITATION AND COMPENSATION SCHEME

The Prime Minister announced today the resignation of Professor Patrick Atiyah from the Committee of Inquiry into a National Rehabilitation and Compensation Scheme.

He said Professor Atiyah had felt obliged, for personal r e a s o n s t o return to England earlier than expected. He had taken up a post in the University of Warwick.

The Prime Minister said he regretted that the Inquiry would be deprived of Professor Atiyah's knowledge and assistance. However, the Committee was now well advanced in its work, and for this

reason he had decided,after consultation with the Chairman, Mr. Justice Woodhouse, that it would not be practicable to replace Professor Atiyah.
