§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Minister of Pensions why John Jessiman, late sergeant, Royal Artillery, of 108, Bunbury Street, Trent Bridge, Nottingham, a soldier of 20 years' standing, who served during the War in the Army Ordnance Corps on the recruiting staff and subsequently in the Records Office, has been refused a re-assessment of his pension?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
I have been asked to reply. This man served as a civilian, and I am afraid no exception can be made to the established rule requiring that the pensioner must have re-enlisted in order to have his pre-war pension reassessed.
