HC Deb 28 January 1931 vol 247 c987W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he will reconsider the case of Frederick J. Dayton, of 16, Levington Street, Grimsby, now a patient in the Grimsby institution infirmary, with a view to some portion of this man's Greenwich Hospital gratuity being paid to his wife, who has no other means of maintaining herself and her five children?


Under the regulations governing the Greenwich Hospital Charity, pensions derived from the charity are not payable while the pensioner is maintained in a rate-aided institution, and I regret that no part of Mr. Dayton's pension is therefore available for payment to his wife. Should Mr. Dayton desire, the question of the admission of his children to homes to be maintained at the expense of Greenwich Hospital Funds would receive consideration.
