Request

Details of injuries suffered by staff/MPs at work in the House of Commons for the most recent 12 month period.

Could you please provide me with details of the injury, including how it is believed to have happened, the date it took place and if medical treatment was required.

Also, if any compensation claims have been made (and amount paid out if claim has been settled).
