HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 cc458-9
15. Major HURST

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the increased cost of living, he will consider the desirability of increasing the service pensions of pre-war pensioners who, for no fault of their own, but purely by reason of age and ill-health, were unable to join the Colours in the recent War?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to my reply yesterday to a similar question put by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Edmonton.
