HC Deb 18 April 1899 vol 69 cc1461-2
SIR J. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state what number of Compassionate Pensions to soldiers who served in the Crimean and Indian Mutiny campaigns have ceased during the last three years in consequence of the deaths of the recipients; and what number of old soldiers are still in receipt of such pensions?


During the three last financial years 422 deaths hare occurred among the special campaign pensioners. 2,667 men are still in receipt of these pnsions.
