§ MR. O'HANLON (Cavan, E.)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is a fact that James Brady, of Lisagavan, Kingscourt, county Cavan, served seven years in the Army, six of which was in India during the mutiny of 1857 and 1858, received a medal for same, got sixpence a-day pension for three years, with a penny per day for good conduct; whether he is now unable to work, being over fifty years old and in delicate health; and, whether this man will get the pension of sevenpence per day for the remainder of his days?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY (Mr. HERBERT GLADSTONE) (Leeds, W.)
(who replied) said: There is nothing to take this case out of the usual course by 456 which the man will be allowed a pension of 4d. a day from the time he reaches the age of 50 years, which will be in April, 1887. He should then apply for his deferred pension.
§ MR. O'HANLON
said, he had not been able to hear the answer, and he would have to put the Question on the Paper again.
