HC Deb 27 February 1919 vol 112 cc1925-6
18. Mr. MOLES

asked the Pensions Minister whether Engineer-Lieutenant Wilson. His Majesty's ship "Ajax," was in 1915 invalided out of the Service because of creosote poisoning; whether in July, 1915, Lieutenant Heron applied for consideration of his pension allowance, and was then informed that the matter would receive attention; whether a further application in 1916 received a similar reply; and whether, as this officer is now in poor health, his case will receive early consideration?


The case of Lieutenant Heron was first brought to the notice of the Ministry in December last. It has been taken up with the other Departments concerned, namely, the Admiralty and the Ministry of Shipping, to ascertain whether the conditions of his service entitle him to pension.
