§ 88. Major COHEN
asked the Minister of Pensions what is the number of hand-propelled tricycles which have been supplied by the Ministry to disabled soldiers since 1914; whether there has been any other source of supply; and, if so, what is its title and how many tricycles has it supplied?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
This Department commenced the supply of hand-propelled tricycles in March, 1918, and the number supplied up to the 30th June was 1,549. Prior to March, 1918, 272 tricycles had been supplied by the Lord Kitchener National Memorial Fund. I understand that a small number has also been supplied from other charitable sources, but the figures are not available.
