HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 c2722

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that R. Michinson, 3/M.M./5978 received a favourable decision from the Pensions Appeal Tribunal to the effect that his complaint was aggravated by service, but has been declared ineligible for pension on the ground that he is in Section B of the 1st Class Army Reserve; and will he explain why men, who under these circumstances may be unable to follow their employment, are not entitled to compensation for their war-imposed physical infirmities while not actually serving in the Army Reserve.


I am glad to say that the technical difficulty which occurred in this case has been removed, and instructions have now been given for the appropriate compensation to be awarded.
