I am unable to furnish statistics on the lines specified by my hon. Friend. But I may say that up to the 21st November last 2,550 cases had been dealt with by the Ministry. In 1,402 of these cases a further grant had been made. In the remaining cases considered it had been found, either on local medical advice or otherwise, that there was no ground for disturbing the final award.
