HC Deb 05 June 1919 vol 116 cc2182-3

asked the Pensions Minister whether he is aware that Gunner V. Hampson, No. 260891, Royal Field Artillery, enlisted in April, 1918, and was passed as an A 1 man; that he was discharged on 12th October, 1918, suffering from epilepsy; that prior to enlistment he had never suffered from the complaint but was in perfectly sound health; and that he is now quite unfit to follow any employment; whether he is aware that he was allowed a disablement pension of 11s. per week which is now discontinued; whether he will' state the reasons for such discontinuance; and whether, seeing that there seems to be no prospect of him being ever able to earn his living, inquiries will be made with a view to granting him a total disablement pension?


The question of Gunner Hampson's eligibility for pension will be determined by the Pensions Appeal Tribunal, to whom he has appealed. The case is down for hearing on the 17th instant. As all the papers are with the tribunal, I am unable at the moment to ascertain the particulars of the case.
