HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3110-1

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will facilitate a decision being arrived at in the case of Driver George Jenkins, No. 8169, late Royal Field Artillery, of 3, Lyddon Grove, Wandsworth, who enlisted on 3rd September, 1914, and was discharged as medically unfit in October, 1917, and who is married and has six children; and whether he is aware that he received a pension until November, 1922, when the same was discontinued, and since which time nothing has been heard from the Ministry in respect of the discontinuance?


The Medical Board which examined this man in August, 1921, assessed disablement at less than 20 per cent, and, accordingly, a final weekly allowance, which has now expired, was awarded under Article 1 (3) of the Royal Warrant. This award has been declared final under the War Pensions Act, 1921, subject to the man's right of appeal to the independent Pensions Appeal Tribunal.
