§ 62. Mr. DALTON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is now prepared to reconsider the operation of the seven years' limit on claims for pensions in respect of disabilities resulting from war service?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of PENSIONS (Lieut.-Colonel Stanley)
No, Sir. My right hon. Friend sees no ground for adopting the course suggested. I would remind the hon. Member that, as my right hon. Friend has repeatedly stated, arrangements have been made whereby he is enabled to deal specially with any exceptional ease in which a man shows that he is seriously incapacitated by, his war service, and there was good reason for his failing to make his claim within seven years from discharge. I am glad to be able to say that, from information 1906 gathered at recent meetings with Chairmen of War Pensions Committees throughout the country, I am assured the present arrangements are operating satisfactorily.
