HC Deb 10 July 1924 vol 175 c2428

asked the Minister of Pensions if he can see his way, by legislative or administrative action, to placing on a permanent and more satisfactory basis the pensions of men suffering from incurable tuberculosis in Preston Hall, near Maidstone?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Mr. Roberts)

The men suffering from tuberculosis who are inmates of Preston Hall, are in that institution either for periods of treatment, or for treatment combined with a course of training. Such cases are not, therefore, in a condition in which a final award could properly be determined in the interests of the men themselves.
