asked the Minister of Pensions what steps he is taking to examine the claim of Ronald Albert Powell to a disablement pension.

No trace can be found in the records of my Department of any claim for a disablement pension by a Mr. Ronald Albert Powell. It has now been established that Mr. Powell did not serve in Her Majesty's Forces.

I had a suspicion that that was the case. Will the Minister do his best to insure that the Press give equal publicity to his vindication of the Ministry as they gave to the ill-informed and malignant remarks of the magistrate?

I hope that the Press—and I am sure that they will—will give publicity to the answer I have given to the Question.
