HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 cc212-4W
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 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. 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.
