§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether pensions will be granted to two artillerymen who were severely injured last week while engaged in a military display under the orders of their officers at the Royal Irish Military Tournament in Dublin?
If the injuries received by these men should unfortunately prove sufficiently serious to prevent them from continuing in the service they will be pensioned.
§ CAPTAIN DONELAN
Can the hon. Gentleman say whether they will receive any money grant as compensation for their injuries?
No, Sir. The matter would depend to some extent upon the nature of the injuries, and it is impossible to say at present.
