HC Deb 02 April 1925 vol 182 cc1560-1W

asked the Minister of Pensions how many awards under the Dispensing Warrant were made in the 12 months ending 31st December, 1924; and the number of cases dealt with and awards made under the correction of errors arrangements made by his predecessor?

Lieut.-Colonel STANLEY

Approximately 1,600 awards were made under special sanction during the twelve months ending 31st December, 1924. Of these 212 were grants made in cases where the final award had been found to be seriously erroneous, under the arrangements initiated by my right hon. Friend and extended by the late Government.
