HC Deb 15 March 1923 vol 161 cc1736-7

asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that William Ernest Williams, late No. 20,511, West York Regiment, residing at 9, York Street, Abertillery, now in receipt of a pension of 8s. per week, has made an application for a commutation of his pension to enable him to enter a drapery and millinery business of which he has had training and experience, and that the commutation of the pension has been refused and no reason given for the refusal; and will he have the case reopened, and, if satisfied of the bona fides of the applicant, will he have the pension commuted as requested by Williams?


An application for commutation was received in 1920, and was refused. No reasons why commutation was desired were given. No further application appears to have been made, and I am afraid that as the amount; of the award is below the non-commutable minimum a renewed application could not be entertained.

Forward to
