HC Deb 07 March 1972 vol 832 c289W
Mr. Palmer

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will consider again the war pension position of Mr. C. Ashworth, of Bristol, consequent upon the wounds attributable to Army service during the 1914–18 war, about which the hon. Member for Bristol, Central, has already corresponded with his Department.

Mr. Dean

We are always willing to review the assessment of a war pensioner's disablement if medical evidence is submitted showing that the accepted disability has worsened since the last assessment was made. Since I last wrote to the hon. Member on 23rd December, 1971, we have received no evidence to suggest that his constituent's accepted disabilities have worsened.
