§ Mr. WILLIAM REDMOND
asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland how many applications for old age pensions have been received in county Clare; what is the sum that has been paid in respect of such claims; and how many claims have been rejected in consequence of the Poor Law relief disqualification?
§ Mr. HOBHOUSE
As I explained to the hon. Member for the Pembroke and Haverfordwest District on 2nd December last no statistics of the local distribution of old age pensions are available, and it would involve much time, labour and expense to grant the numerous requests for detailed information in respect of particular areas.
