§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Pensions, if he will investigate the circumstances attending the refusal of a pension to Mr. A. E. Young, of 9, Rokeby Street, Stratford, case No. 11/M/444,738; and whether he will have this case reexamined?
§ Major TRYON
I have inquired into the facts of this case, and find that Mr. Young was demobilised in February, 1919, and it was not until May, 1930, that he made any application for pension. The statements which have been forwarded by him, then and subsequently, in support of his application have been carefully considered in consultation with my medical advisers, but no grounds have been found on which it could be certified that the present condition of his disablement is the result of War service. Mr. Young has been informed accordingly.
