HC Deb 04 December 1919 vol 122 c542

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the pension of 3s. 6d. a Week which is granted to holders of the Distinguished Conduct Medal is in addition to the State pension given in respect of disability or whether, in the case of policemen who have been disabled in the War, it is intended that this pension should. be merged in any allowance from police funds authorised by Section 1 (2) of the Police Reservists (Allowances) Act, 1914?


Any pension payable in respect of disability due to service is in addition to the pension granted to holders of Distinguished Conduct Medal. I have no information which will enable me to answer the last part of the question.
