§ Mr. WATERSON
asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that disabled soldiers wearing artificial limbs find that the necessary fittings considerably depreciate the wearing value of their clothes; whether any special allowance is made for this, which is a drain on their pension; and, if not, whether he is prepared to consider making a grant to such persons who are thus disabled?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
As far as is practicable, artificial limbs and appliances are designed so as to prevent damage to clothing. I am considering how far it is possible to meet exceptional cases where an artificial limb or appliance does in fact cause damage which cannot be prevented by the use of a protective pad or other device.
