§ CAPTAIN BAGOT (Westmoreland, Kendal)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether any money is now available for Special Compassionate 27 Campaign Pensions for services prior to 1860; and, if not, whether he intends to take any steps to continue the issue of such pensions?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. WOODALL,) Hanley
(who replied) said: One hundred special pensions begin in this financial year, and these have already been allotted. About 50 vacancies are expected during the year among the pensioners, for whom £10,000 a year was specially granted. These vacancies will be filled as they arise.
