HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c98W
76. Miss Fookes

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will now modify the over-seven-years rule in connection with claims for disability pensions by ex-Japanese prisoners of war.

Mr. Dean:

I refer my hon. Friend to my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Petersfield (Miss Quennell) on 13th April. My meeting with the deputation from the National Federation of Far Eastern Prisoner of War Clubs and Associations had to be postponed because of travel difficulties and will take place shortly.—[Vol. 834, c. 223-4.]
