HC Deb 09 June 1904 vol 135 c1215
MR. SLOAN () Belfast, S.

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that the present pension the men who served in the Crimean War are in receipt of is inadequate for their support., he will consider the advisability of giving them an increase sufficient to enable them to live outside the workhouse.


All those in receipt of small pensions, who are in necessitous circumstances, are now being granted special increases provided that they have either been wounded or discharged for disability, or are at the present time suffering from a disability clearly due to their military service.
