HC Deb 02 March 1925 vol 181 cc59-60W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that Mrs. Pettit, 54a, Lorenco Road, Tottenham, widow of the late Private George Pettit, No. 56,091 case No. 11/W/17,188), has been refused a pension on the ground that her late husband's death was not due to his War service; whether he is aware that the insurance company has refused to pay a claim of£28 on the ground that Pettit's death was due to War service; and, in view of the direct contradiction of these two statements, whether he will have this case reconsidered?


This case has been very carefully considered in the light of all the evidence obtainable, but I regret that it has not been found possible to admit entitlement to pension. The widow has a statutory right of appeal against that decision to the Pensions Appeal Tribunal, and she has been so informed.
