HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 cc589-90W
Sir R. Aske

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the number of ex-service men suffering from disability in consequence of their service who are receiving; public assistance; and how many of such men are 50 years of age or over?

Mr. Elliot

I regret that the information desired is not available, as the returns rendered to my Department do not distinguish ex-service men from other recipients of poor relief.
