HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 214 c983W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will further consider the claim of Mrs. Parsons, aged 76, of 14, All Saints Road, Leicester, for a dependant's pension in respect of her son, the late Private R. Noon (reference 7/Rels. N/424 F. 3 W.), who entered the Army in 1914 prior to the outbreak of the Great War and died, after seven years' service, in Netley Hospital on 27th November, 1921, the cause of death being chronic bronchitis?


This case has already received careful consideration, but as Private Noon's death was not found to be directly attributable to military service, I regret that I am precluded, under the terms of the Pay Warrant, from granting Mrs. Parsons a pension from Army funds.
