4. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the Minister of Pensions the number of pensioners suffering from tuberculosis who have been put off treatment allowances during the three months ending 29th February; and if it is now the policy of the Ministry not to pay treatment allowances unless a man is in an institution?
§ Major TRYON
During the three months quoted 2,459 cases terminated a course of treatment with allowances, whilst 1,221 fresh cases were admitted to treatment with allowances. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
