HC Deb 21 April 1921 vol 140 c2034

asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that the widow of Private Thomas Thompson, No. 1010, Northumberland Fusiliers, has got no pension for the death of her husband, who committed suicide after having lost his leg in the War; if so, will he grant some pension or payment if the doctor certifies that his state of mind was caused by the loss of his leg; and is he aware that the widow and children are only having parish allowance?


Further consideration is being given to this case in view of the medical evidence now furnished in connection with the widow's appeal to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal. I will inform my hon. Friend of the result.
