HC Deb 08 March 1915 vol 70 cc1165-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will cause inquiry to be made into the case of Bugler A. N. Wade, No. 10637, now of 1, Wedmore Gardens, Upper Holloway, who enlisted on 24th August, 1914, in the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry, and was discharged on 6th February, 1915, from Connaught Hospital, Aldershot, suffering from tuberculosis, said to have been contracted during his period of service; is he aware that Wade has been tendered £1 5s. 9d. in final settlement of his account, that his insurance care has been returned stamped up to 28th December, 1914, only; and will he say whether no further payment can be made, notwithstanding the fact that Wade's health has been seriously undermined by the unavoidably severe conditions of housing to which he was subjected?


I will have inquiry made, and inform the hon. Member of the result.
