HC Deb 24 April 1923 vol 163 cc289-90W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether anything is being done

Midlands region for medical examination to Stoney Street, Nottingham, involves much time and money on the part of these pensioners; and whether he will consider an arrangement to enable them to be medically examined in their own districts?

Captain CRAIG

I am afraid the suggestion made by the Noble Lord would not be practicable. I would point out, however, that, in addition to Nottingham, there are boarding centres in several large towns in the East Midlands region, and that reasonable travelling expenses and compensation for loss of remunerative time are paid to men summoned for medical examination.
