71. Sir G. HAMILTON
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is yet in a position to make any statement regarding the case of Mr. V. A. Budd, of Ilford?
§ Mr. HAYES (Vice-Chamberlain of the Household)
In the unavoidable absence of my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Pensions, I have been asked to reply. The applicant's wife, who is acting on her husband's behalf, has been invited to furnish the usual information and evidence in support of the application, but this has not yet been furnished. As soon as a reply is received, the case will be considered, and the hon. Member will be informed of the result.
Sir G. HAMILTON
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that it is now over six weeks since I wrote to the Minister about this case, and that I am quite prepared to give particulars myself if the Minister will let me know what particulars he wants?
