HC Deb 06 July 1916 vol 83 c1673
86. Sir G. TOULMIN

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that Charles Cadden, No. 5849, 1st Lancashire Fusiliers, was discharged from the Army on 11th March physically unfit, and that he is unable to resume his work; whether he is aware that this man was not given on discharge either insurance or medical card, which he did not receive for three months, thereby losing considerable benefit; whether he is aware that he has two sons in the Army and live other children under sixteen, and that the separation allowance was stopped immediately on his discharge; and, seeing that this disabled soldier, his wife, and family have been left for weeks without resources, whether the separation allowances can be continued until the pension and other arrangements in connection with sick, wounded, and broken soldiers are completed?


I am making inquiries into this case and will let my hon. Friend know the result as soon as possible.
