§ Mr. STEWART
asked the Secretary of State for War whether Private James Campion, No. 25932, of the 2nd Cheshire Regiment, who was wounded in France in 1917 and invalided home from Salonika in 1919, has been sent to the local workhouse infirmary; whether his pension of 10s. 4d. a week, a matter of importance to his wife and five children, is in danger now that he is in a rate-aided institution; and whether hospital expenses in cases of this sort can be charged to the State and not made a local charge upon the rates?
§ Sir LAMING WORTHINGTON-EVANS
I have been asked to reply to this question. I am having the matter specially investigated, and I will communicate the result to the hon. Member as early as possible.
