HC Deb 21 January 1924 vol 169 c535W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he has the case of Mrs. A. Baldwin, of Chesham, Bucks, under consideration; and what steps he proposes to take to see what provision is made for this widow of an ex-service man who died while in performance of his military duty after his health had been undermined by his continual war service?


The decision of my Department that this soldier's fatal illness was unconnected with his service during the Great War has been confirmed, on appeal, by the independent Pensions Appeal Tribunal. I regret, therefore, that the case cannot be reopened.
