HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1427W
Mr. Isaacs

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that ex-Private Gordon Henry Sands, No. 52748, Durham Light Infantry, also Army Cyclist Corps, in 1919, whose 50 per cent, disability pension was stopped in 1923, was, in May last, refused employment in Woolwich Arsenal on the ground that he was unfit owing to his leg wound; and whether, in view of the fact that the man's pension has been stopped, he will take special steps to find him employment?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

Inquiries are being made, and I will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as possible.
