§ 13. Sir E. STOCKTON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in consideration of claims for maladies alleged to have a War-service origin, the Ministry take into consideration and accepts at its face value the fact that the applicant was, after medical examination, passed into the Army classed as A1?
§ Major TRYON
The man's medical classification on enlistment, along with all other facts of the case, is fully considered in dealing with any claim to pension.
§ Mr. G. A SPENCER
How can the medical referee certify that a man is suffering from some ailment contracted prior to his service, when a medical board has 'sassed the man as A1?
If a man was classified A1 on enlistment, is not that primâ facie evidence that, he was not then suffering from any disease?
