HC Deb 07 December 1920 vol 135 c1885
12. Major HAMILTON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers and other ranks of His Majesty's Army and Air Force and civilians in the employment of the War Office and Air Ministry who are killed or wounded when or service in connection with the present disturbances in Ireland will be treated as regards pension for disability or pension for their dependants, if killed, on the same scale as laid down for those who suffered in the Great War?


As regards members of the Army and Air Force, I have nothing to add at present to the answer given on the 23rd November to the hon. and gallant Member for Bradford East (Captain Loseby). As regards civilians, they are entitled to the same regulated compensation as other civilians injured in the United Kingdom, but the hon. and gallant Member is doubtless aware that they can also claim compensation under the Criminal Injuries (Ireland) Act, 1919.


asked the Secretary of State for War the names of all regiments which have had present or ex-members murdered or wounded by rebels in Ireland?


The names of the regiments concerned are invariably stated when casualties to the military forces are published in the Press, but no record is kept by the War Office of ex-members of the Army who have been murdered or wounded by the rebels.
