HC Deb 15 July 1919 vol 118 c208
58. Sir F. LOWE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the claims of Civil servants who retired be fore 1915 to a war bonus in addition to their pensions to meet the increased cost of living, especially having regard to the fact that those who retired since that year are now receiving these allowances?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave yesterday to a question on this subject by the hon. Member for Plaistow.


Is there a very large number of these people, and will it involve a very considerable cost if their demands are complied with, because there is a very great amount of dissatisfaction?


I shall be very pleased to get any information which my hon. Friend is able to supply.
