HC Deb 17 February 1887 vol 310 c1765

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether any arrears of pay are due to Private James Gillen of the 9th Regiment of Foot, invalided from China for impaired sight; and, if he received only £30 16s. 6d. out of seven years' pay; and, whether, in consequence of his loss of sight while in the Service, he is entitled to a pension?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (MR. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

No arrears of pay are due to Private Gillen. The last payment made to him was one of £9. Gillen made no application whatever for a pension for seven years.
