HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 cc1197-8W
Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE

asked the Pensions Minister whether the near relations of a discharged soldier undergoing treatment in a civil hospital for disabilities contracted on service are entitled to half-fare railway vouchers when visiting him; and, if so, to whom they should apply for these vouchers?


The answer is in the negative. But in the event of the condition of a patient becoming critical local committees would be justified in paying the cost of railway journeys undertaken by his nearest relative.
