§ Sir R. CLOUGH
asked the Minister of Pensions the number of weekly payments now being made to war pensioners through the Post Office; whether, as more than one-fifth of these pensioners change their address every year, there is any delay in payments; and what is the total of pensions per month on a rough average which lapse from any cause whatever?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
The number of weekly payments being made to pensioners through the Post Office is estimated at approximately 1¼ millions. The changes of address are not so numerous as my hon. Friend states, and generally no delay in payment arises from this reason. The total number of pensions which terminate from all causes is approximately 20,000 per month.
