§ Colonel ENGLAND
asked the Minister of Pensions how many applications for the reconsideration of pension: cases have been received by his Department since the announcement of the Government's policy with regard to the seven years' limit; how the number of these applications compares with the number received during the similar period 12 months previously; and what proportion of the recent applications have been acceded to?
§ Mr. F. O. ROBERTS
With regard to the first and last parts of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave yesterday to the hon. and gallant Member for Carnarvon (Major Owen) of which I am sending him a copy. With regard to the second part. of the question, comparable figures for any preceding period for this class of case are not available, but the number of cases dealt with is now, 1 believe, substantially higher than before.
