HC Deb 30 July 1937 vol 326 c3510
29. Mr. Tinker

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he can make a statement on the position respecting an inquiry into the conditions of ex-service men who claim to be suffering from war service upon which a deputation of Members of Parliament interviewed him?

The Minister of Pensions (Mr. Ramsbotham)

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to a similar question on 13th April last. The position remains unchanged as I am still without evidence to justify the suggested inquiry.

Mr. Tinker

If I remember rightly when the deputation met the hon. Member on 3rd February, they were given to understand that some information was expected from the ex-service men and that when he got the reply he would go into the matter and see what could be done. Has he received that information?

Mr. Ramsbotham

I explained that the British Legion were carrying out investigations. As far as I am aware, the investigations are still going on, and I am without any further information.
