HC Deb 26 June 1933 vol 279 c1176W

asked the Minister of Pensions if he has considered the claim of Mr. E. McGouran, of 50, Upper Harrington Street, Liverpool, S., for pension in respect of disseminated sclerosis following typhoid fever contracted in Gallipoli; and, if so, whether the disability has been accepted as due to service?


This case has been carefully considered more than once in consultation with my medical advisers, but no grounds have been found on which it could be certified that Mr. McGouran's unfortunate condition is the result of his service during the Great War. The hon. Member is no doubt aware that Mr. McGouran was in a condition to continue his service in the Army until June, 1930, 15 years after the attack of typhoid fever referred to.
