§ Lieut.-Colonel HURST
asked the Minister of Pensions whether he is aware that on the 5th December, 1919, a medical referee reported that ex-Private John Dunn, No. 63010, Northumberland Fusiliers, of 42, Derby Street, Moss Side, Manchester, had lost his left eye through war service; that a claim for pension, founded on this report was forwarded by the local pensions committee on 3rd January, 1920; that the committee sent a further claim on 11th August, 1920, and a reminder on 14th October last (3/M.D./l,115); that this claim is still neglected; that the man's incapacity has increased; and whether he will direct expedition in this case?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I regret I have not been able to collect all the facts in the short time available, but I am making urgent inquiries, and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
