§ Lieut.-Colonel ARCHER-SHEE
asked the Pensions Minister whether Captain A. G. Bowers, late Essex Royal Horse Artillery, was demobilised on 18th March and has so far not been able to obtain a medical board to assess his disability; and whether steps can be taken to expedite this case, in view of the fact that he is waiting to proceed to a Crown Colony under medical advice and his departure has had to be delayed until his disability has been assessed?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The claim made by Captain Bowers was not received in this Ministry until 18th June. Arrangements for a medical board have now been made and this report will be expedited.
