§ Colonel ENGLAND
asked the Minister of Pensions the number of applications for pensions which have been rejected' owing to their having been made more than seven years after demobilisation; and how many of these affect cases of mental trouble which have slowly developed?
§ Major TRYON
I cannot, I regret, give the information desired, as there is no classified record of all the applications which for various reasons are not proceeded with. I may add, however, that any case of the kind referred to in the last part of the question would be considered in which connection between the mental condition and the man's war service was clearly shown.
