§ 71. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Minister of Pensions the number of widows and other women, respectively, who have been prosecuted by his Department since 1918 for fraudulent receipt of pension?
§ Mr. Grimston
I have been asked to reply. I am informed that there are no figures prior to 1922, but since 1st January of that year 327 prosecutions for obtaining, or attempting to obtain, pension by fraudulent misrepresentation were initiated against women pensioners, of whom 118 were widows.
