HC Deb 18 July 1929 vol 230 cc665-6W
Major OWEN

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in view of the fact that no further members can be added to the North-West Wales Pensions Committee, he has made any other arrangements whereby ex-service men in the Lleyn and Pwllheli districts can obtain guidance and assistance in the submission of their grievances and claims?


The War Pensions Committee are assisted in the two districts referred to by 17 voluntary workers, appointed by the Committee, in all parts of the area specified, whose function it is to give advice and assistance to ex-service men. I am taking steps to consult the Committee with a view to a possible increase of this number, and I shall be glad to consider any suggestions the hon. Member may wish to make.
