§ Dr. Godman
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security how many former Far-East prisoners of war residing in(a) Renfrewshire and (b) Scotland have made applications to the War Pensions Agency for compensation; and when they will receive the compensation. 
§ Mr. Bayley
The information is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. We expect to start sending out ex-gratia payments at the beginning of February.
