§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Sir John Gilmour)
I regret that the information asked for by my hon. Friend is not available, as the statistics relating to claims under the Act are not analysed on a territorial basis. I can give the figures for the whole of Scotland, but as they involve a tabular statement, I propose to circulate them in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ The figures are as follow:
|Widows before 4th January, 1926.||19,836|
|Orphans before 4th January,1926.||1,748||21,584|
|Widows whose husbands died after 4th January, 1926.||398|
|Orphans whose parents died after 4th January, 1926.||11|
