HC Deb 16 February 1933 vol 274 c1185W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether his attention has been drawn to the case of J. C. Porter, late 203677, private O.B.L.I., at present a patient in Mossley Hill Hospital, Liverpool, who lost his employment with the Birmingham Corporation as a result of his war wounds; that he has been in and out of military hospitals since his discharge from the Service; that treatment allowances have been refused despite the fact that this inability to work is due to his war wounds; and will he consider the payment of treatment allowances or, alternatively, increasing the pension, which at present is only at the rate of 8s. per week?

Major TRYON:

I am inquiring into this case, and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
