Pension - Military pension - Disablement award - Claimant granted disablement award in 1948 for stomach condition - Claimant suffering from heart condition in 1990 - Hospital unable to give claimant drugs due to stomach complaint - Claimant seeking further award on basis lifestyle detrimentally affected by non-provision of drugs - Pension Appeal Tribunal refusing to grant award - Whether tribunal in error.
The Pensions Appeal Tribunal had erred in refusing to grant a claimant a disability award in circumstances where the claimant had raised a reasonable doubt that an earlier condition, which had been caused by military service, had caused him not to be given treatment for a heart condition which had detrimentally affected his lifestyle, since the tribunal had failed to dispel that doubt.
