§ Captain FAIRFAX
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the total number of men invalided for tuberculosis in 1924 and in 1925; how many were either pensioned or given final awards; and what was the average figure of the pension or award per head in 1924 and 1925?
The total numbers of men invalided for tuberculosis were
1924 … … 156 1925 … … 217
All men invalided were granted pensions or gratuities according to the scales laid down, but I regret that the average award cannot be stated without considerable research.
