HC Deb 18 July 1910 vol 19 c859

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the death of Mr. H. Cox, after a long period of suffering, as the result of injuries received in the course of his duties in connection with the application of X-rays; and whether, having regard to all the circumstances of the case, he will recommend the widow for a Civil List pension?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

I am aware of the sad circumstances of Mr. Cox's death. As regards the second part of my hon. Friend's question, it is impossible for me to express any opinion until I am furnished in the usual manner with such information as is required in the case of all applications for relief from Civil List Funds.


Will the right hon. Gentleman sympathetically consider any applications that may be sent in?
