HC Deb 03 December 1906 vol 166 c570

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider, in consultation with the Admiralty and with the Treasury, the possibility of remedying the condition of things under which a man who has given over twenty-four years service to his country, partly in the Army and partly in the Navy or Marines, is held to be ineligible for pension; and whether he will consider the advisability of so amending the regulations, and the instructions given to the Commissioners of Chelsea Hospital, as to preclude the recurrence of such a case.


Steps have been taken to prevent the recurrence of the conditions which gave rise to these cases. The general question is not escaping attention.
