HC Deb 09 December 1908 vol 198 c462
MR. CATHCART WASON (Orkney and Shetland)

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether pension officers have been instructed to appeal against claims granted by a pension committee on the ground that the applicant has been absent; and, if so, will he state the nature of the instructions issued to pension officers, especially with reference to seafaring persons.


The instructions on this point are contained in the Statutory Regulations, paragraph 29 (a) (ii.), to which I may refer my hon. friend. No other instructions have been issued.
