§ 16. Mr. T. WILLIAMS
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will furnish a statement showing the weekly amount of war disability pension paid for each category of disability; the number of persons in each category, distinguishing between privates, non-commissioned officers, and officers; and the amounts of allowances paid to nurses, widows, children, parents, and other dependants?
§ The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
As the answer involves considerable detail, I propose, with the hon. Member's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ The following is the answer:
§ The numbers of pensioners of the several categories referred to and the estimated weekly value of the pensions and allowances in payment to them on the 31st March last, were as follow:1503
|Per cent.||Officers.||N.C.O's.||Men.||Weekly Value.*|
|Parents and other Dependants||…||…||292,890||123,950|
|* The values of wives' and children's allowances are included in the values shown for men, widows and dependants.|
