asked the Minister of Pensions if he is aware that ex-Private T. Scott, regimental No. 3,637, 8th Durham Light Infantry, is not in receipt of a pension, and yet served in the Army from 1914, was on two occasions severely wounded and also gassed, with the result that he has been unable to follow his work and earn his livelihood, but has had to be maintained by his parents, who are also in straitened circumstances; that the nerves of the arms of the man are gone; and will steps be taken so as to allow him to get his pension?

In the short time available I have not been able to obtain particulars of this case. I will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
