Mr Major’s Written Parliamentary Answer on Captain Balnave – 15 July 1986

Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Parliamentary Answer on Captain Balnave on 15th July 1986.

Mr. Hancock Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when his Department will expedite the payment to Captain Balnave of 23 Malvern Road, Southsea, Portsmouth, awarded to him on appeal.

Mr. Major [pursuant to his reply, 9 July 1986, c. 171]: Captain Balnave’s appeal was successful in establishing entitlement to a war pension for an additional disablement. A medical board is being arranged to advise on the assessment of the level of disability so that payment can be made at the appropriate rate as quickly as possible.
