§ Mr. HAZLETON
asked the Chief Secretary whether he is aware that in the 742W Dunmore (county Galway) district some e pensioners in receipt of pensions since 1st e January have not yet received the second issue of books; and will he state the reason for delay?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
There has, I am informed, been some slight delay in the second issue of pension books, but that e issue is now practically complete. In many cases a cause of delay has been the absence of pensioners from home when the pension officer called to deliver new books.
