§ 43. Mr. W. BAKER
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will supply an analysis of the 4,355 first awards made during the calendar year 1927, showing the number under each of the following 1791 headings: widows' pensions, need pensions, new claims from men already in receipt of pensions, disability pensions, awards to nurses, and awards to officers?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Lieut.-Colonel Stanley)
The 4,355 first awards referred to comprise the following:
Claims for additional compensation from men already in receipt of pensions are not included in these figures, which relate to first awards only.
To wodows (including a few motherless children) 2,030 To adult dependants 1,092 To disabled officers 186 To disabled nurses 12 To disabled men 1,035
I should not like to say it would be impossible. It might involve a great deal of work.
