PADRAIG O hOGAIN PADRAIG O hOGAIN
PADRAIG O hOGAIN (An Clár) asked the Minister for Defence whether he is aware that Patrick Considine, Dunogan, Miltown-Malbay, Co. Clare, was injured by falling off a lorry whilst discharging his duty as a member of  the National Army, and was discharged as medically unfit about twelve months ago; whether, in view of Considine's incapacity to provide for himself, his case for pension will be decided at the earliest opportunity.
General MULCAHY General MULCAHY
General MULCAHY: The enquiries in the case of Patrick Considine who alleges that he was injured by falling from a lorry are not yet completed. I am not, therefore, in a position to state whether his case comes under the provisions of the Army Pensions Act, 1923, but its consideration will be expedited as much as possible.
