HC Deb 02 June 1938 vol 336 c2263W
Mr. Ridley

asked the Minister of Health the number of men and women, respectively, between the ages of 55 and 65 insured under national health insurance at January, 1938, and the number drawing disablement benefit between these ages?

Mr. Elliot:

I regret that the complete statistics for which the hon. Member asks are not available. It is, however, estimated that the numbers of insured men and women in Great Britain between the ages of 55 and 65 at the date mentioned were about 1,500,000 and 400,000 respectively, and that of these about 105,000 men and 50,000 women were then in receipt of disablement benefit.
