HC Deb 06 March 1924 vol 170 c1570
13. Lieut.-Colonel RUDKIN

asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that there are many ex-service men who have become blind since their discharge but are not in receipt of any State aid; and whether he will give an opportunty for such cases to be sympathetically considered by his Department, with a view to pension or other assistance?


I am not aware of any cases of blinded ex-service men, whose condition is either due to or aggravated by War service, who are not in receipt of pension from my Department; but I shall, of course, be glad to inquire into the facts of any particular case which the hon. and gallant Member may have in mind if he will let me have details.
