23. Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he can state the number of cases where pensions have been reviewed under the Correction of Errors Regulation in each of the past five years; and the number of such cases where an increase of pension has been awarded in the same years?
Cases which have been reviewed and an increase of pension awarded numbered about 1,800 in each of the financial years 1926 and 1927; about 1,600 in 1928, 1,100 in 1929, and about 1,500 in the financial year just ended.
The right hon. Gentleman has not dealt with the last part of the question, dealing with the number that have been considered as well as the number that have received particular grants.
That information does not appear to be available, but I will look into the point raised by the hon. Member.
§ Mr. ERNEST BROWN
Can the right hon. Gentleman make the information available to the House, because there is a lot of feeling about the working of the Awards Department at the moment?
