HC Deb 22 April 1909 vol 3 c1667
Viscount MORPETH

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he will ascertain the number of pension officers who have applied for sick leave during the last five months?


It would throw considerable extra work upon the staff of the Department if I were to call for the information desired by the Noble Lord, and I do not think the figures when obtained would be of sufficient value to justify the trouble involved in obtaining them, as they would not indicate whether or not the illness were caused by overwork in connection with the old age pensions.
