HC Deb 10 March 1927 vol 203 cc1335-6
7. Viscount SANDON

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has any statistics or whether he can give an estimate for each year up to the present, as to the number of ex-service men who, having failed either before his Department or before the appeal tribunal, stated separately, have died of the complaint as to which they applied for a pension in the same year, and also at any time up to the present?


The records of mortality in my Department relate only to the deaths of pensioners. I regret therefore that I am unable to give statistics with regard to the cases referred to in this question, nor is there any material on which an estimate could be framed.
