§ 6. Mr. S. Shephard
asked the Minister of Pensions how many ex-Service pensioners have been re-examined during the past six months; and how many have had their pensions reduced as a result of such examinations.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
About 124,000 ex-Service pensioners were examined during the six months ending 31st December, 1946. A decision was notified during the same period in slightly under 120,000 cases. In about 52,000 of these cases pension was reduced or terminated.
