§ 49. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Minister of Pensions the total number of wholly disabled ex-Service men in Scotland; bow many of these have been provided with cars; and how many complaints he has received in the past 12 months concerning the efficiency of these cars.
About 4,500 ex-Service men in Scotland are receiving pensions from my Department at the total disablement rate. Of these 178 have been supplied with motor cars, 74 with all-weather motor tricycles and 40 with other types of motor tricycles.
As regards the last part of the Question, I regret that I am unable to state the number of complaints because no record of this sort is maintained.17W
§ Mr. Hamilton
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will consider the possibility of supplying to wholly disabled ex-Service men cars in which a second seat is provided.
I have considered such a possibility in relation to invalid motor tricycles, to which I assume the hon. Member refers, but in present circumstances, and bearing in mind the technical and other difficulties, I can hold out no hope of supplying an invalid tricycle with two seats.
