HC Deb 21 February 1924 vol 169 cc2002-3W

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will cause inquiries to be made as to why his Department persists in demanding Mr. A. F. Bird, of 42, Arthingworth Street, Stratford, to travel to attend medical boards, notwithstanding the fact that medical certificates have been submitted to the Pensions Department that the man cannot travel, and the chief area officer has intimated that his desire is for the man to be examined at home; and whether he will give instructions accordingly?


There appears to have been some misunderstanding in connection with this case. I have arranged for the man to be medically examined at his home at once.
