HC Deb 05 July 1900 vol 85 cc628-9
MR. CLANCY (Dublin Co., N.)

: I beg; to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the case of a man named Henry Beatty, who, after having been in the Army and Reserve for twenty-one years and six days, was discharged from the Reserve on 7th January, 1886, with a good conduct certificate; whether he is aware that the greater portion of Beatty's period of service was spent in the East Indies, where he contracted fever and ague, the effect of which has been absolutely to rain his health and render him incapable of any active employment; and will he state whether Beatty is entitled to a pension; and, if so, to what pension, and, if the man has trot received it, will he explain on what ground it has been withheld.


If the hon. Member-will tell me the regiment from which Henry Beatty was discharged, his case shall be inquired into.
