HC Deb 15 July 1924 vol 176 cc226-7W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Secretary of State for War how many claims for a long-service pension have been put forward unsuccessfully since January, 1922, by old soldiers who left the Army prior to the great War, but rejoined; and whether he possesses any statistics to show how many of these men with a length of service over 10 years are now dependent on the Poor Law?


I regret that I am not in a position to give this information, as statistical records of this nature are not kept.
