HC Deb 31 July 1923 vol 167 cc1288-9W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been called to a representation made to the regional director, London district, by the Ealing, Acton, Southall, Uxbridge, and district war pensions committee as to the insufficient accommodation provided at their Ealing office, and to the inadequate size of the staff, in view of the large number of cases dealt with; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take?

Captain CRAIG

The accommodation at this office is admittedly barely sufficient and steps are being taken to provide additional space. The staff is adequate for the normal work of the office. There is, however, some arrear of work and assistance has been sent there temporarily.
