§ Mr. F. C. THOMSON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Sergeant Alexander M'Donald, No. 4107, 1st Highland Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, was discharged from the Army on 29th September, 1902, after having completed 12 years' service, joined the Territorial Force in 1908, was mobilised at the outbreak of war, and was discharged on account of disability on 2nd August, 1916, and has been refused a service pension; and whether he will take steps to have a pension awarded to M'Donald?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The records of this man's service have been carefully examined. Some parts of it do not count as qualifying service for service pension, with the result that he is not entitled.
