5. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Minister if Pensions how many fall-time area pension offices and sub-offices there are in the county of Yorkshire and where they are situated; and the maximum distance that a pensioner may be living from the nearest office where he can apply for treatment in respect of disabilities due to war service?
§ Major TRYON
There are in the county of Yorkshire 21 Ministry offices, namely: ten area offices at York, Keighley, Harrogate, Hull, Hnddersfield, Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster and Sheffield; four whole-time sub-offices at Scarborough, Halifax, Dewsbury and Barnsley, and seven part-time sub-offices at Whitby, Northailerton, Todmorden, Pontefract, Goole, Mexborough and Rotherham. I am satisfied that these offices provide adequate facilities for pensioners to apply for treatment, &c. Pensioners living in the remote districts can, and do, make application by post.
