HC Deb 04 May 1925 vol 183 cc576-7
49. Colonel DAY

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been drawn to a Resolution passed by the Bermondsey and Southwark Area War Pensions Committee asking for a Select Committee of the House of Commons to inquire into the whole question of War pensions, and especially final awards, eligibility for treatment and treatment allowances, the 7 years' limit on claims for pension, the assessment of pensions in the cases of epileptics and chronic neurasthenics, the education, training, and after care of motherless children, and pension appeal tribunals and whether he will consider the desirability of appointing a Select Committee on these subjects?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Shoreditch on the 26th March last.
