HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 c891
44. Mr. John MacLeod

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many disabled men in Scotland are waiting for cars of the type supplied for seriously war-disabled 100 per cent. pensioners; and how many have been refused because they have not the necessary disablement qualifications.

Commander Galbraith

Out of 25 applications received since 31st August, 1953, when my right hon. Friend became responsible for the service in Scotland, 12 have had to be refused for the reason stated. Cars have been supplied to 11 applicants, and the other two are waiting for cars that have been authorised.

Mr. MacLeod

Can my right hon. and gallant Friend say why there should be any delay at all?

Commander Galbraith

Because the cars have to be provided.
