I leg to ask the Secretary of State for War what number of pensioners in receipt of pensions for service in the Crimean and Indian Mutiny Campaigns died during the year 1893; and whether the vacant pensions have been awarded to applicants in necessitous circumstances?
§ * THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. WOODALL, Hauley)
