HC Deb 04 July 1910 vol 18 c1476W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether Martin Spelman, at present residing at Ardgallon, near Boyle, county Sligo, has recently been discharged from the 4th Connaught Rangers after twenty-five years' service, without having received either pension or compensation allowance; and, if so, whether, having regard to his long service and good character, this man's case will be inquired into with a view of having a pension allocated?


The Chelsea Commissioners are at present investigating Spelman's claim to pension, and I will let the hon. Member know their decision in due course.
