HC Deb 10 May 1923 vol 163 cc2550-1

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will have inquiries made into the case of P. Molloy, late Labour Corps, of 67, Queen Street, Wigan, whose appeal to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal against a final award was allowed and who is now notified that there are no grounds for further award of pension; if he is aware that this man contracted malaria during his service in the War; that he has been discharged from his last three places of employment on account of suffering from this disease; that he has been compelled to give up his employment as a miner; that he is certified as only fit for work on the surface; and that he has not worked for over two years; and whether, under these circumstances, his claim to a pension will be admitted?


In the short time available, I have not been able to obtain the papers from the region. I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman do not the many questions addressed to him indicate a spirit of great dissatisfaction with the Pensions Ministry, and do they not also indicate the need for more generous treatment?
