§ Mr. W. G. HALL
asked the Minister of Pensions to what extent the medical boarding of men suffering from tuberculosis is undertaken during the more favourable summer months; and will he inquire as to whether this operates adversely to the pensioner?
§ Mr. F. O. ROBERTS
The medical boarding of these cases, as of all other classes of disability, is distributed as evenly as possible over the whole year. The seasonal variations in the condition of a tuberculous case are fully appreciated and are always allowed for in the assessment of pension.
