HC Deb 19 April 1923 vol 162 cc2231-2
19. Mr. BRIANT

asked the Minister of Pensions how many ex-service men suffering from tubercular disease are being treated in village settlements?


I have not got the actual number of ex-service men in village settlements, as they include men whose tuberculosis has no connection with service. I am, however, endeavouring to ascertain the particulars asked for by the hon. Member.


If there be any possibility or probability of this treatment being extended, will the right hon. Gen- tleman see that it is given, as it is of enormous advantage to the men physically, mentally, and morally?


I understand that that is a matter which concerns another Department, and if the hon. Member will put a question down, he will, I am sure, receive a reply.
