Mr. Simmons

asked the Minister of Labour how many of the 1914–18 war disabled pensioners who were eligible for registration for life under the Disabled Persons (Employment) Act at the time of its introduction, are so registered; and what are the numbers of those so registered who are still in the employment field.

Mr. Carr

At 15th April, 1957, there were 120,262 1914–18 war pensioners registered as disabled persons. This number would include some no longer in the employment field, but it is not known how many.
