HC Deb 27 July 1931 vol 255 c1932

asked the Minister of Pensions if his attention has been called to the case of Frederick Sowter, who served in the South Stafford Regiment for over 19 years, who is now unable to work, and who is supported by the Old Comrades Association of his regiment and by charity; and if he will consider the case with a view to assisting Sowter?


Apart from a claim made by Mr. Sowter some six years ago, which was, found inadmissible both by the Ministry and on appeal by the independent appeal tribunal, there is no trace of any application in my Department on the score of disablement. If, as I understand, the claim is based on length of service the matter is one for the consideration of the Secretary of State for War.
