HC Deb 16 March 1896 vol 38 c1008
MR. D. MACALEESE (Monaghan, N.)

I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office, if he has received an application from Patrick Bryan, of Smithborough, county Monaghan, for a small increase of pension; and, considering that Bryan served in the 46th Regiment in the Crimea and gained a medal and clasp, and also served in India during the Mutiny, altogether for 18 years on foreign service, and that he is now over 60 years of age, and unable, owing to a recent serious accident, to perform any labour to assist him in supporting himself and his wife, whether the War Office authorities can see their way to accede to his request for an increase of pension?


Patrick Bryan was awarded the pension authorised by the regulation for his service at the time of his discharge from the Army, and there is no regulation which enables pensions to be revised on grounds unconnected with military service.
