§ Miss LAWRENCE
asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been drawn to the case of Mr. William Andrews, 118, Third Avenue, Manor Park, who enlisted in the 12th battalion County of London Regiment in 1915, and who contracted pneumonia and malaria during service on the Palestine front between 1917 and 1918, being discharged in February, 1919; and whether, seeing that the medical attendant of this man has sent in a certificate to the effect that he has developed tuberculosis, which in his opinion is due to lowered resistance caused through pneumonia and malaria contracted whilst on active service, he will reconsider his application for a pension?
§ Major TRYON
This case has been carefully considered in the light of the statement referred to in the last part of the question, but as I have already informed the hon. Member the evidence as to the facts in the case are not, I regret, such as to enable ace to take further action in regard to it.
