HC Deb 15 December 1938 vol 342 c2203W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Pensions when a decision is to be reached about the case of Mr. Watkins, of 83, First Avenue, Manor Park, who applied for a war pension over six months ago?

Mr. Ramsbotham

A decision has now been reached in this case, and has already been communicated to the hon. Member. Some delay arose from the persistent endeavour of the Ministry to obtain evidence in support of the claim in directions indicated by the claimant.

Sir C. Rawson

asked the Minister of Pensions whether any decision has been reached regarding the case of Mrs. Gladys Richard, referred to in reply to a question on the 5th October?

Mr. Ramsbotham

I am glad to be able to inform the hon. Member that a pension has been awarded in this case under special sanction and that payment is being authorised without delay.
