§ Sir A. HUNTER-WESTON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will inform the House the number of soldiers discharged from the Army during the year 1926 under the headings For wounds and For diseases, respectively; and the number that were granted disablement pensions under each heading?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The total number of disability cases (including those of men already discharged) dealt with by the Chelsea Commissioners during the year 1926 was 2,546. 105 permanent pensions and 764 temporary pensions were granted. No distinction is made between wounds and injury cases on the one hand and disease cases on the other, and I regret that separate statistics are not available.
