§ Mr. SWAN
asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that the 20 per cent. pension to ex-Sergeant Charles Johnson, 2nd Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment, is not being paid to him after being granted at Durham City Medical Board, on 8th April, 1921; that he is still suffering from the effects of his military service; that he has a large family and an 1380W ailing wife dependent upon him; and will he have inquiries made into the case?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
The disability in this case was only accepted as having been aggravated by service, and, as the Pensions Appeal Tribunal have confirmed, and thus made final, the decision of the Ministry, that aggravation has passed away, and I regret that the case cannot be re-opened.
