§ 3. Mr. SMEDLEY CROOKE
asked the Minister of Pensions if he will consider the advisability of amending the War Pensions Regulations to provide that a claimant may qualify for pension if the evidence available indicates the probability that his disability was due to, or aggravated by, war service, although such evidence may fall short of definite proof?
§ Major TRYON
Positive evidence in a legal sense has never been, as is suggested, a condition of the admission of a claim under the Royal Warrants. Every case is considered on merits in the light of all the evidence available in regard to it and it is the practice of my Department to give every claimant under the Royal Warrant all possible assistance in procuring the necessary evidence.
