HC Deb 24 March 1927 vol 204 cc590-1W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that several boards of guardians have recently, passed resolutions regretting the number of ex-service men, debilitated by wounds or sickness incurred during the Great War, who are to-day recipients of poor relief; and whether he can state the approximate numbers of these and the reasons why they are not receiving sufficient pensions to maintain them?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given on the same subject on the 22nd February to the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr. J. Hudson), of which I am sending him a copy. I have no information as to the number of the cases referred to.
