HC Deb 17 January 1924 vol 169 cc290-1W

asked the Minister of Pensions if his attention has been called to the case of Pinnock, of St. Helens, Lancashire, who has lost his sight owing, it is alleged, to service during the late War, and whose pension has been refused on the grounds that his affliction is not attributed to Army service, in spite of the fact that the man was accepted for service as being physically fit in every sense; and if he will make inquiries with a view to securing him some assistance of a financial character, as he is now destitute?


I have not been able to identify this case from the particulars given. Perhaps the hon. Member will let me have further details.
