asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of sailors discharged from the Navy during the year 1926 under the headings for wounds and for diseases, respectively; and the number that were granted disablement pensions under each heading?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

During 1926, 1,632 naval ratings and marines were invalided for disease and 93 for injury or wounds. The number who were awarded pensions was 600 approximately. I regret that statistics are not available distinguishing between pensions for injury or wounds and for diseases.
