§ 37. Mr. T. Smith
asked the Minister of Pensions how many of the 2,267 ex-service men who were refused pensions during the 12 months ended 30th September, 1938, were examined by doctors employed by the Ministry of Pensions?
§ The Minister of Pensions (Mr. Ramsbotham)
I am sorry that I am unable to supply the information desired, as no such detailed record is kept of each individual case that the Ministry are unable to admit.
§ Mr. Ramsbotham
I can assure the hon. Gentleman that an examination is made in all cases where there is any dispute or disagreement as to diagnosis.
