asked the Secretary of State for War if he will inquire into the case of Thomas Newman, No. 291, late 2nd Hants Regiment, of 1, Vigo Road, Andover, who, according to his discharge paper, is entitled to the Afghan medal after serving six years in his regiment, and who left the Army blind of one eye; what his pension is; and why he has not received the medal?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
Mr. Thomas Newman's pension is one shilling a day. No application for a medal has been received from him. If he will forward his application to the War Office, it shall be dealt with at once.
