§ Mr. JAMES O'KELLY
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the case of Edward Hudson, Lisgarr, Ballyroddy, Elphin, county Roscommon, who had an old age pension granted to him by the Boyle sub-committee, and had the pension disallowed, on appeal by the pension officer, on the grounds that the record of the claimant's birth was not forthcoming; and whether, seeing that this record with a number of other documents relating to the parish were burned after the death of Father Egan, P.P., and that it is claimed that Hudson was born on 31st October, 1838, and was married on 3rd February, 1873, the pension will be granted in this case?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Hobhouse)
I have not been able to obtain the information. Will the hon. Member put the question down for Monday?
