HC Deb 08 August 1911 vol 29 cc1122-3W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, whether he will ask the Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital to reconsider the question of a Grant to Robert Perry, late of the 12th Lancers and Imperial Yeomanry, having regard to the fact that, since his examination by the medical board on 12th July last, Dr. Cohen, of 461, Green Lanes, Harringay, N., has certified in writing, dated 20th July, that Perry is still suffering from the effects of the operation for a ruptured adductor longus of the left side, and to the consideration that the finding of the medical board that he is not incapacitated does not imply that he is under no disability where long hours and physical strain are concerned, without which it is difficult for him to get a living?

Colonel SEELY

The case will be further investigated and the hon. Member informed of the result in due course.
