asked the Minister of Pensions why the payment of a pension to Mr. W. F. Jones, 38, Bollo Lane, Chiswick, W.4, pension book No. GN. 7544, was terminated on 4th May last; and whether he will arrange for the necessary forms to be sent forthwith to Mr. Jones to enable him to appeal against this decision.

At the last medical examination in April, 1948, the disablement was assessed at less than 20 per cent. Mr. Jones was awarded a final weekly allowance, plus a gratuity of £40, which was paid in April last. He was informed of his right of appeal. At no time has Mr. Jones indicated to my Department dissatisfaction with this award but I am arranging for him to be medically examined again.
