HC Deb 01 June 1927 vol 207 cc397-8W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether having regard to the recommendation for operation at Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton, recently made in the case of Mr. E. M. Maton, of 9, Monkton Place, High Street, Ramsgate, he is still satisfied with the decision of the Ministry in November last year that the degree of disablement arising from Mr. Maton's pensionable disability had been reduced from 30 per cent. to 20 per cent.; and whether the present degree of disablement is still at the latter figure?


I find that this man has refused to undergo the operation recommended and has, therefore, been discharged from hospital as no other treatment is likely to be of benefit to him. In these circumstances, I am not in a position to re-consider the assessment of the case.
