HC Deb 21 January 1924 vol 169 cc536-7W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been called to the case of David James Evans, of Ilar House, Meyrick Street, Dolgelly, who, as the result of a medical board, was sent to the Chester Royal Infirmary as a case for urgent medical treatment whether he is aware that Evans remained at the infirmary from the 17th December till the 10th January last without being seen by any doctor; that he was there for a week without being supplied with a knife, fork, or spoon and had to eat with his fingers; and that he made several complaints without result; and will he inquire into the matter?


The complaints referred to have been investigated and are found to be entirely without foundation. I am writing to the hon. Member in reply to a letter which he has sent me regarding the case.
