§ MR. J. P. FARRELL (Longford, N.)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in consequence of debility and bronchial asthma, he is aware that Edward Lynam, formerly of 44th Foot, who served in the Indian Mutiny and was discharged on 30th January, 1877, is unable to obtain employment of any kind; and whether he will direct that some extra pension or allowance be granted to him in consideration of his former services in the Army.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) This man was granted 1s. a day pension, the maximum pension to which he was entitled under the Warrant in force at the time he left the service. As he was not wounded or discharged for disability he is not eligible for any increase of his present pension.
