§ Mr. LANSBURY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total number of persons who received grants of public money of £5,000 and upwards for services rendered during the great War and the names of such persons: and whether the sums of money so granted were unconditional or were invested in war loans or other Government stock for the benefit of the recipients and their heirs?
Twenty such grants were made in accordance with Resolu- 617W tions of the House of Commons. Full particulars will be found in the OFFICIAL REPORT, 5th March, 1918, column 1865, and 7th August, 1919, column 731. In accordance with the usual procedure in such cases, the grants were made the subject of trusts in favour of the recipients and their heirs. The nature of the investment of the grants is within the direction of the trustees, of whom the Public Trustee is one.
