HC Deb 10 December 1925 vol 189 cc629-30

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been called to the casie of Mr. O. Morgan, of 34, Coltman Street, Greenwich, S.E.1O, late private, No. 32,284, of the Devonshire Regiment, who, as the result of war wounds, was awarded a pension of 10e. a week for 104 weeks, and in September, 1924, a gratuity of £20 at the end of the pension period; whether he is aware that, the wounds on one of Morgan's ankles having broke out again, the man is receiving treatment under the Ministry of Pensions although all applications for further pension have been rejected by the Ministry; and whether, in view of the fact that Morgan is practically a helpless cripple and unable to work, consideration will be given to his further claim for pension?


I have made inquiries into this case, and find that the man is receiving surgical treatment with the necessary allowances. At the conclusion of treatment, his condition for pension purposes will be considerd in the normal course, and if the final award is found to be seriously erroneous, any necessary adjustment will be made.
