§ Sir J. Smedley Crooke
asked the Minister of Pensions whether any system of co-ordination has been arranged with the Minister of Health that will enable him to state the number of pensioners that are in receipt of public assistance committee relief; and the number of pensioners that are in receipt of a partial disablement pension and national health disablement benefits?
§ Sir W. Womersley
No, Sir. I am satisfied, after consultation with my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Health, that no system of co-ordination between my2650W Department and the organisations responsible for national health insurance and public assistance is reasonably practicable which would enable the figures desired to be collated.
