HC Deb 01 October 1931 vol 257 c550W
Captain W. G. HALL

asked the Minister of Pensions why Mr. W. E. Harvey, of 69, New Road East, Portsmouth, was refused treatment allowances in March, 1931, although he had to relinquish work and income whilst suffering from a recurrence of illness due to his war disability?


Treatment allowances are, in the terms of the Royal Warrant, only payable where a man is prevented from working in consequence of having to undergo a prescribed course of treatment certified by the Ministry to be necessary for a war disablement. No such course of treatment was found to be necessary in Mr. Harvey's case, and allowances were not, therefore, payable.
