§ Mr. KIRKWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the case of James Chalk, late 2nd Brigade Royal Artillery, who was injured at Kirkee, in India, in December, 1880, with a view to his receiving a pension from Army Funds?
§ Mr. HALDANE:
There is no record in the man's documents of the injury which he alleges he sustained in India in December, 1880. He served with the colours for more than five years after that date, and was discharged on the termination of his engagement, and not as an invalid. He is not, therefore, eligible for the award of any pension from Army Funds, and he has been informed to this effect on several occasions.
