HC Deb 08 November 1944 vol 404 c1362
65. Mr. Shephard

asked the Attorney-General how many appeals to the pensions appeals tribunals have been heard; and what number of such appeals have been granted pensions.

The Solicitor-General

Up to 4th November, 10,319 appeals had been disposed of by the Pensions Appeal Tribunals in the United Kingdom; of these 2,820 appeals were allowed. In all ordinary cases, the allowing of an appeal determines the right to a pension. There are a very small number of cases in which this may not be so, namely, where, in certain cases, there is no present need, or where there is at the moment no assessable degree of disablement.
