§ 63. Mr. Simmons
asked the Minister of Health if he will state the number of civilians who suffered serious disability as a result of enemy action in the United Kingdom during the 1914–18 war.

I regret I am unable to give the complete figures. Under a Government scheme ofex gratia awards to civilians or their dependants for death or disablement through enemy action, 422 applications were received in respect of injury and 221 awards made.
