HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 cc1294-5
64. Mr. HOGGE

asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to make any temporary provision for disabled men whose disability is said not to be due to or aggravated by service until such time as other and permanent arrangements are made to deal with them?

Gentleman seen a statement by the Paymaster-General that the cases of men accepted as medically fit and discharged as suffering from disease due to service must be con- sidered by Parliament, and where the separation allowance to wives and children ceases immediately and neither pension nor separation allowance is paid would he consider giving the temporary allowance until the matter is finally adjusted?


Of course I will consider it, but I must leave it to the Statutory Committee.
