HC Deb 24 April 1941 vol 371 cc273-4W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Minister of Pensions, with reference to the case of Mr. G. W. Collins, invalided out of the Queens Own Royal West Kent Regiment, and, in view of the evidence that he was fit when enlisted, and completely incapacitated when discharged, whether he will secure for Mr. Collins a period of medical treatment with a view to the cure of his present disability?

Sir W. Womersley

The mental condition from which Mr. Collins is unfortunately suffering is, I am advised by competent expert authority, of a constitutional nature and is not attributable to or materially worsened by his service. In these circumstances I regret that I have no power to provide Mr. Collins with treatment for his condition.
