HC Deb 15 April 1926 vol 194 cc459-60

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that J. W. Holland, of 15, McAlpine Street, Toronto, Canada, whose case he submitted to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal, has been refused a pension; that he is unable to work through his War disabilities and is now a charge on the rates of Toronto, and because of this the Canadian authorities have informed Holland that he and his family will be deported to this country; and what course will he pursue in the matter?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

The official information in my possession does not support the suggestion that the man in question is unable to work in consequence of his War disability. I have, however, cabled instruc- tions directing a further medical examination and I will communicate the result of my further consideration of the case to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
