§ 7. Mr. MARCH
asked the Minister of Pensions how many local authorities have made representations to him for an amendment of the War Pensions Act, 1921, with a view to the abolition of the seven years' limit in respect of claim to pension by men who are still suffering from a renewal of their disability after their pension has ceased; and whether the Government propose to take any action to meet the proposal made by such authorities?
§ Major TRYON
Representations in identical terms regarding the matters referred to have been received from 14 local authorities. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given by me on the same subject in replying to the right hon. Member for Deptford on the 25th ultimo, of which I am sending him a copy.
