§ 73. Mr. Leslie Hale
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is now in a position to announce the grant of a pension to Mr. S. Hesietine, of 77, Ripponden Road, Oldham, who has been in a serious condition without effective action for some considerable time.
§ Mr. Wilfred Paling
As the hon. Member has been informed, Mr. Hesletine appealed to the Independent Pensions Appeal Tribunal against the decision of my Department that his disability was not caused or aggravated by service. I now understand that the case is listed for hearing by the Tribunal in the week commencing 25th March.
