HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 c899W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will explain why a wound gratuity and wound pension is refused to Miss Eileen King, a member of Queen Alexandra's Nursing Service, who was severely wounded by hostile bombs while on military duty in France and passed permanently unfit for further military service?


Members of the Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service are not eligible for wound gratuities or wound pensions. The question of the rate of disability retired pay for which Miss King may be eligible is a matter for the Ministry of Pensions and, as I have already informed the Noble Member, her case has been referred to that Department.
