asked the Minister of Pensions whether he can now make permanent the pension of ex-Private C. Elliott, late Derbyshire Yeomanry, regimental No. 1,507, who is suffering from tubercular disease of the groin 879 caused by the kick of a horse whilst on military service; whether he is aware that this man has already undergone 10 operations for tills disability and has now been ordered to a military hospital to undergo a farther operation, and that this disability was incurred seven years ago; and whether, Under these circumstances, this man's case can be finally disposed of by granting him a permanent pension?
