asked the Minister of Pensions for what reason he has refused a disability pension to Mr. Richard Scantlebury, a member of Liskeard Joint Fire Brigade, who has been incapacitated by ill-health directly attributable to his fireman's duty since fighting fires during the Plymouth raids?

As the hon. Member has already been informed, Mr. Scantlebury was not a member of a Civil Defence organisation within the Personal Injuries (Civilians) Scheme, and I have no authority to award him compensation under that scheme. His claim in respect of ill-health attributable to duty as a member of the Liskeard Joint Fire Brigade is a matter for the fire brigade committee.
