HC Deb 17 May 1900 vol 83 c400

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will favourably entertain the giving of a substantial compensation in the case of James Quinlan, who met with an accident working in Woolwich Arsenal in 1881, from which he has never recovered; and if medical certificates proving the injuries Quinlan suffered from will be taken into account; and whether he can state why his pension has not been granted and his sick pay never given.


The particulars given in the question have proved insufficient to enable the case to be identified. If details can be given as to the approximate date of the accident and the department in which the man was serving at the time, further inquiries can be made.


Will the case be thoroughly inquired into? Attention has before this been drawn to it.

[No answer was given.]
