HC Deb 12 July 1923 vol 166 cc1548-9

asked the Minister of Pensions what is the total number of pensioners receiving treatment for War neurosis and other shell shock conditions; and whether he is satisfied with the provision made in the different regions for the treatment of pensioners suffering from shell shock and/or neurasthenia?


The number of patients at present receiving treatment under my Department for War neurosis is about 6,900. The whole question of the treatment of this very difficult condition is kept constantly under review by my medical advisers. Full provision is made for the most modern treatment. I am glad to say that our accommodation is ample and we have no waiting list.
