HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 cc2078-9W
Mr. Mort

asked the Minister of Pensions whether an advance of pension can be granted to Thomas Goatley, 20, Ty-mawr Street, Swansea, No. 4181763, South Wales Borderers, who has been receiving 5s. 3d. a week, suffering from malaria as the result of war service in the last war, and has a wife and four children; and, as this man joined up this time but was discharged as unfit after a short period in the anti-aircraft section, will he treat this as a case for sympathetic consideration?

Sir W. Womersley

It has not been possible in the time available to obtain the papers regarding this case. I will, however, look into it and write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
