§ Mr. BANFIELD
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he can now take steps to have compiled the number of surviving pre-war Civil Service pensioners and the total amount payable at present in respect of their pensions, in view of the fact that such figures are available in the case of teachers and police?564W
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
Statistics are not kept for these three services on identical bases, and I regret that, as I informed the hon. Member on 20th December last, the compilation of this information for the Civil Service would entail a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour.
