HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c1986
18. Mr. BRIANT

asked if a discharged soldier receiving a temporary pension for service during the late War is eligible to continue to receive at the same time the life pension which was granted for previous service?


If the life pension were granted purely for length of service, or for disability other than that for which the temporary pension is awarded, the two pensions can be held concurrently. The combined awards in respect of disability must not, however, exceed the total disablement rate of pension.
