Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005

Saver for repeal of Workmen's Compensation Acts.

[1993 s76]

97.—The Workmen's Compensation Acts, as amended by Part V of the Civil Liability Act 1961 , shall continue to apply to cases to which they would have applied if the Social Welfare (Occupational Injuries) Act 1966 had not been passed, being cases where a right to compensation arose in respect of employment before 1 May 1967, except where, in the case of a disease or injury prescribed for the purposes of section 87 , the right did not arise before that date and the workman, before it arose, has been insured under this Chapter against that disease or injury.
