HC Deb 30 March 1922 vol 152 cc1497-8
1. Lieut.-Colonel Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that Private Leslie Dillon, No. 32,176, late of Labour Battalion, the Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment, now residing at 31, Trewent Street, Earlsfield, has been informed that his pension, of which he has been in receipt since demobilisation, will cease in May of this year; that while in service in Salonika he contracted malarial fever and neurasthenia; that on his return to England he was sent to the Neurological Hospital, Church Lane, Tooting, where he remained for 11 months; that he is unfit for employment because of his neurasthenia and debility; and will he take steps to have the case inquired into?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Mr. Macpherson)

I am having inquiries made into this case, and as soon as I have received a full report I will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend.
