§ 4. Mr. PONSONBY
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that William Wilkinson, of 51, Fell Street, Sheffield, was informed by the Pensions Appeal Tribunal, in September, 1922, that a final award should not have been made in his case; that, on his coming up for examination before the regional medical board, the same doctor on two occasions, in spite of the decision of the Appeal Tribunal, declared there was no disablement; and what steps this man can now take to receive a pension for a disablement from which the Appeal Tribunal acknowledge him to be suffering?
§ Major TRYON
Three separate medical boards held between 1920 and 1922 found no remaining disablement in this case, and on the nil assessment becoming a final award the man exercised his right of appeal to the Tribunal, who set aside the finality of the award without questioning the assessment. A subsequent medical examination, however, disclosed no assessable degree of diablement, and the man is, therefore, not at present entitled to further compensation from my Department.
