HC Deb 23 June 1921 vol 143 cc1571-2W

asked the Minister of Pensions the position of Michael Goteley, Sapper, No. 157825, who was informed on 12th March that he had been granted an allowance on the alternative pension scale of £2 10s. 5d. per week, but is still only receiving 24s. per week; and, seeing that this man cannot walk without the aid of two sticks and is a patient at St. Helens Hospital, and therefore unable to work, whether the full allowance with arrears will be paid to him?


There is no record at the Ministry of this man having received medical treatment since the 25th January last, when he reverted to disablement pension. I am, however, having urgent local enquiries made and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
