HC Deb 16 June 1924 vol 174 cc1745-6W

asked the Minister of Pensions what policy he proposes to follow in connection with the case of ex-service men suffering from tuberculosis whose pensions have been disallowed but who still suffer from this disability?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) on the 29th ultimo, of which I am sending him a copy. Any case of the type referred to, in which additional evidence is furnished, will be most carefully considered and a suitable grant made, with the assistance of the Treasury, if the disability is found, in the light of all the evidence available, to be due to service in the late War.
