§ 65. Mr. DUNCAN GRAHAM
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of persons in the county of Lanark who are likely to be deprived of medical and other benefits 1273 as a consequence of the coming into operation of the National Health Insurance and Contributory Pensions Act, 1932; and the number of maternity benefit claims disallowed during the past three years?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. Skelton)
I am informed that the number of persons in the county of Lanark, including all burghs except Glasgow, who have ceased to be entitled to benefits under Sub-section (5) of Section 1 of the Act of 1932, is approximately 4,000. As regards the latter part of the question, I regret that, as the records of approved societies who administer maternity benefit are not arranged on a territorial basis, the information asked for is not available.
