HC Deb 26 July 1934 vol 292 cc1947-8W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether, in view of the strong feeling that exists among many airmen that Commander Colmore, a skilled pioneer airship pilot, should not have his pension cancelled without an inquiry, he will cause an inquiry to be now held to hear Commander Colmore's case and the medical evidence to ascertain the nature of the injury, this officer's conduct when shot, etc.?


An inquiry into the circumstances attending the injury sustained by Commander Colmore in 1915, such as the hon. and gallant Member suggests, would, as a matter of service discipline, not be within my functions, but would be one for the Service Department or Departments concerned.
