§ SIR J. LENG (Dundee)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War what provision has been made, or is contemplated, for invalided soldiers from South Africa who are so physically 1490 weakened or shattered as to be-incapacitated for earning the livelihood of themselves and their families or dependents.
§ * THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE. FOR WAR (Mr. WYNDHAM,) Dover
The men will be paid and medically treated, until they are discharged, their families receiving the ordinary allowances. After discharge their claims to pension will be considered by the Chelsea Commissioners. The powers of the Commissioners have recently been enlarged to admit of a higher scale of pension being accorded to men incapacitated by disease contracted on service.
