56. (1) Where injury has been sustained while on duty, and the Manger has ascertained that the injury was attributable to the set or omission of some person employed by the department other than the person injured, or was the result of defect in departmental material or appliances, or where injury has been sustained in protecting Government property from loss or damage, the Manager may approve of payment on account of reasonable transport, bona fide medical and hospital expenses incurred in consequence of the injury.

(2) Where an officer or employee sustains an injury on duty under circumstances which do not bring his case within the terms of clause (1), and it is not proved to the satisfaction of the Manager that the injury is attributable to his serious and wilful misconduct, the Manager may approve of payment of the cost of medical first-aid rendered to the injured person, when the services of the person rendering such aid have been obtained on the authority of a responsible officer, and of the transport of the injured officer or employee to a hospital or his home.”
