HC Deb 23 July 1931 vol 255 c1683
89. Major COHEN

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been drawn to a decision of the Assessment Appeals Tribunal, made on 4th June, 1931, affecting a disabled officer who was awarded a gratuity before August, 1921; and whether he proposes to take any action to inform all disabled officers and men affected by this decision of their right to appeal?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Mr. F. O. Roberts)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The matter is under consideration.


Will the Minister of Pensions continue to grant permission to these disabled officers and men to apply to the appeals court, and for that body themselves to decide as to the time limit?


That is a matter which shall certainly have consideration.
