§ Sir S. Summers
asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance how many Service men who contracted pulmonary tuberculosis during service in the Second World War, and who were at the time of discharge the subject of an official notification under the tuberculosis regulations, were discharged without any entitlement to disability pension or allowance.
§ Mr. Harold Davies
I regret that this information is not available.
The notification of tuberculosis was a matter for the Service Departments, but my Department automatically considered entitlement to a war disability pension where tuberculosis was a cause of 90W invaliding. This consideration is still given and applies in all invaliding cases.
