§ 42. Mr. NEIL MACLEAN
asked the Minister of Pensions whether Mrs. Cartwright, widow of Sapper George Cartwright, No. 50592, Royal Engineers, has made application for an alternative pension; whether his Department have declined the application on the ground that one of his previous employers cannot be found; if he is aware that the pre-War wage claimed for £4 10s. is accepted by County Court judges in assessing cases under the Workmen's Compensation Act, and whether he is prepared to reconsider the application?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)
My right hon. Friend is causing further inquiry to be made in the case and will communicate with the hon. Member at an early date.
