HC Deb 26 May 1927 vol 206 c2145
1. Major COHEN

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will inform the House as to the number of final awards reviewed under the correction of errors scheme (Circular 30) from the 1st January to 30th April, 1927; and the number of such cases that have resulted in increased assessment of pension?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

Records are not kept in precise monthly periods, but approximately 600 cases were dealt with by way of further grants under special sanction during the period referred to. Of these, however, not more than half are additional to the figures which I give to the hon. Member of the Elland Division in my reply of 22nd March, of which I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy.
