§ 29. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
asked the Minister of Health whether it has been brought to his notice that the police authority in Bedfordshire is taking steps to secure the eviction from 63, Spring Road, Kempston, of ex-P.C. W. J. D. Martin, 1064 invalided from the constabulary as a result of an illness contracted during overseas war service for which he receives a small pension; and whether, in view of the grave hardship involved, he will arrange for this man's replacement to reside elsewhere until Mr. Martin and his family can be found alternative accommodation by the local authorities.
§ Mr. Skeffington-Lodge
Is my right hon. Friend aware that no Government Department will take responsibility for this or any similar case? Is not that a real disgrace?
