HC Deb 29 March 1945 vol 409 c1553W
Mr. McGovern

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of men, women and children, respectively, who have lost the sight of one or both eyes, one or both legs or arms, respectively, or been treated for serious mental or nervous disorder from 3rd September, 1939, up to the latest date as a result of enemy action.

Mr. H. Morrison

I presume that the hon. Member refers to civilians only. The only figures that might be available are those for cases in which pensions have been awarded by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Pensions. My right hon. Friend advises me that an undue amount of time and labour would be involved in extracting them from his records, and he regrets he does not feel justified in undertaking it in present circumstances.
