HC Deb 06 September 1909 vol 10 c1066W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has received any further statement with regard to the case of Michael Bourke, late private in the Leinster Regiment; and whether, taking this man's statement into account, and noting all the circumstances of this case, a small increase of pension could be granted in order to help him to get medical assistance and such food as a delicate man requires?


I have received the further statement to which the question alludes. As I have already explained to the hon. Member, this man is in receipt of the maximum pension to which he is entitled, and it is regretted that nothing more can be done for him.
