HC Deb 23 February 1888 vol 322 c1239
MR. HANBURY (Preston)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether any, and if so how many, persons are still drawing pensions from the Consolidated Fund in virtue of having been, so far back as the year 1820, already on the Civil List of His Majesty King George III.; and, what are the ages of the oldest and the youngest of such persons?


Six pensions still remain open which were formerly on the Civil List of King George III., the ages of the recipients, so far as known, ranging from 75 to 92 years. These pensions are only paid on production of a life certificate, and in one of the cases this has not been produced for more than a year, and in another for nearly three years; it is, therefore, possible that the list may be now reduced to four.
