HC Deb 25 June 1918 vol 107 cc889-90

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether he will inquire into the case of Owen Evan Jones, of Old Company Row, Brynaman, No. 639250, National Amalgamated Society, London, and ascertain why this discharged soldier is not paid what is due to him on account of ill-health?


I have been asked to reply to this question. My hon. Friend has made inquiries into this case, and is informed by the society that the member did not notify his enlistment or his discharge from the Army, and that no claim for benefit has reached the society. It has been impossible up to the present to trace Mr. Jones at the address given by the hon. Member or at any address known to the society, but the society has assured my hon. Friend that as soon as the member is found his claim for benefit will be dealt with as promptly as possible.
