HC Deb 01 May 1928 vol 216 cc1494-5
14. Mr. R. YOUNG

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, with regard to George Moss, No. 4119530, Cheshire Regiment, who was discharged from the Army for a foot injury or disease contracted while in India, whether he can say what the injury or disease is; whether the diagnosis was the same in India was after his return to this country and what it now is; and whether this soldier is entitled to any disability grant or payment, seeing that the trouble is of a permanent nature?


As regards the first part of the question, it would be contrary to the established practice to dis- close details from a soldier's medical history sheet. As regards the last part of the question, as Private Moss's disability was not attributable to his military service, I regret that he is not entitled to a pension from Army funds. He has, however, been granted a gratuity of £16, which is the maximum sum for which he was eligible.
