§ 13. Mr. BARKER
asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that a pension has been refused to ex-Private W. Austin, No. 227,893, 1st Monmouthshire Regiment, at present residing at 5, Parrot Row, Blaina, Monmouthshire; that this man was gassed on 24th June, 1917; that he was in eight hospitals for a total period of two years before he was discharged; and that he has been in hospital 23 weeks since he was discharged and on treatment allowance for two years; and will he have this case fully reinvestigated and the man reboarded so that he may obtain his pension?
§ Major TRYON
I am having further enquiry made into the facts of this case, and I will communicate with the hon. Member when I am in a position to do so.
