The information sought is as follows:
(i) Vote for the Office of the Minister for Justice—Compensation for Personal Injuries Criminally Inflicted.
Compensation payments up to 28 November, 1978, arising out of bombings:
An additional sum of £19,000 has been awarded to an injured person who is a minor and will be paid as soon as certain procedural requirements have been complied with.
For various reasons there are still some twenty cases in which the Tribunal have not yet been in a position to make a final award.
