§ 10. Mr. G. LOCKER-LAMPSON
asked the hon. Member for St. George's-in-the-East whether he can give any estimate of the number of insured persons who became entitled to disablement benefit on 13th July last?
The Insurance Commissioners have no means of making any precise calculation as to the number of persons who, on 13th July, became entitled to disablement benefit, but on the best estimate of which the circumstances admit they are inclined to believe that the number approximates to 80,000.
