HC Deb 19 February 1895 vol 30 c1091
MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether one of the qualifications required from a candidate for a "Special Campaign Pension" is that he must be destitute of means of support; and, whether he can see his way to abrogate this condition, which gives a preference to the thriftless, and throw the pensions open to old soldiers who comply with all the other conditions prescribed?


The conditions under which this special compassionate pension is granted are at present under my careful consideration.
