25.

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will make inquiries into the case of Mr. James Lindsay, of Shropham, Norfolk, whose pension was stopped on the death of his son. Private Albert Edward Lindsay, No. 3279, Royal Fusiliers, he being in the battle of the Somme, 1916; and, seeing that this man is 74 years of age, has only his old age pension, and is only able to do very little work through suffering from a chronic disease, will he take steps to have the pension restored?

I am glad to inform my hon. Friend that it has been found possible to make a further award of pension to Mr. Lindsay.
