asked the Secretary of State for War, If Isaac Hempton, now living at Mount-joy East, Omagh, county Tyrone, served for 21 years in the Army, 16 years and 354 days being Foreign service, and was retired in 1875 on a pension of 11d. per diem, having medals for Crimean and Indian service; if he is aware that, owing to a wound received by Hempton at the relief of Lucknow, he is now absolutely unable to engage in any occupation for the support of his wife and family; and, if, considering his long service and good records, the Commissioners will be prepared to consider his claims for an increase of pension?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN) (Stirling, &c.)
, in reply, said, the case was not one which would come within the consideration of the Commissioners.
