§ Mr. F. Maclean
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he will reconsider his Department's refusal to grant a pension to Mr. Charles Parkinson of 20 Leslie Avenue, Caton, Lancaster, who was 213W graded as A.1 on entering the Army in December, 1940, and discharged as unfit for service in April, 1941.
§ Mr. Marquand
The reasons why I am unable to grant a pension to Mr. Parkinson were fully explained to the hon.214W Member in my Parliamentary Secretary's letter of 28th March. As then stated Mr. Parkinson has been informed that he can appeal to the independent Pensions Appeal Tribunal if he is dissatisfied with my decision.
