asked the Minister of Pensions the total amount of money that has been expended by the Ministry from the King's Fund; the amount of money still available for future cases; and the type of case that is eligible for assistance from this fund?

The total amount expended up to date from the King's Fund is £1,355,221. The balance as at 31st January last, not already earmarked for specific distribution, is approximately £11,600. As regards the last part of the question I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the full reply given to the hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Mr. Bellamy) on 13th November, 1928, of which I am sending him a copy.
