§ Mr. Grimond
asked the Minister of Pensions how many of the 51,000 totally disabled war pensioners will get £9 1s. 6d. or more a week when the new rates come into operation.
I am glad to say that the number in this category of the most severely disabled is estimated to be only about 200, excluding officers. I regret that the number in relation to officers, who are included in the figure of 51,000, could not be obtained without a disproportionate expenditure of time and labour.
