HC Deb 18 January 2001 vol 361 c387W
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. [144502]

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.
