HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 c1774
57. Captain Prescott

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has now arranged for an independent medical specialist to visit and examine Mr. T. Aspden, of 93, Hindle Street, Darwen.

The Minister of Pensions (Sir Walter Womersley)

I am looking into this case and will write to my hon. and gallant Friend.

Captain Prescott

Is it not a fact that this case has been before the right hon. Gentleman's Department for a long time, and that a previous Question was put on the Order Paper, and taken off on the assurance that an independent specialist would visit Mr. Aspden? Cannot the matter be expedited forthwith?

Sir W. Womersley

It will be expedited as much as possible.
