§ Sir R. Aske
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will state the number of ex-service men suffering from disability in consequence of their service who are receiving Unemployment Assistance Board allowances; and how many of such men are 50 years of age or over?
§ Mr. E. Brown
The only available statistics, which were obtained in April, 1937, show that 20,233 disabled ex-service men then registered at Employment 381W Exchanges were applicants for Unemployment Assistance allowances. I am afraid it is not possible to divide the figures into age groups.
