§ 14. Mr. Shinwell
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many persons applied for the £4 grant in December; and how many were in receipt of the grant.
§ Mr. Shinwell
Can my hon. Friend say whether there have been any complaints on the part of any of these recipients about this grant, and whether 704 my right hon. Friend has received any letters of appreciation?
§ Mr. Pentland
We have received—the Department, my right hon. Friend and I myself—many hundreds of expressions of appreciation of the Government's policy on this matter.
