HC Deb 19 May 1931 vol 252 c1773

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in cases where a retired regular officer makes application for commutation of pension supported by an opinion of his medical practitioner that he is a fit case for commutation and that such would be in the interests of the officer, he will sympathetically consider recommending such a case to the commutation board for. medical examination by that board before a decision is given in regard to the application?

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

I can only add to the reply which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member on 20th April last that any medical evidence as to his state of health which an officer might submit would always receive full consideration by the Ministry of Pensions.
