HC Deb 31 May 1932 vol 266 c999

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will state the number of applications for pensions that have been received outside the seven-years' time-limit; the number of applications that have been admitted: the number that are still under consideration; and the number which have been refused?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

I regret that the information asked for in the first and last parts of the question is not available. The total number of late applications which have at any time been accepted for award of pension was up to 31st March last 1,735. In addition, in 765 cases grants of allowance or gratuity had been made and in 624 cases medical treatment only was found to be necessary. The number of cases in hand at the end of March was about 1,000.
